    Description

    Saxony. Johann Georg I gold 2 Ducat 1630 MS62 NGC, 6.88g, KM421, Fr-2701. CONFESS LUTHER: AUG: EXHIBITÆ SECULUM, Johann Georg, facing right, dressed in royal robes and cap, sword in right hand held over shoulder, extending left; IOH-GEO across fields, 1630 Z5 JULY around above / NOMEN (shield) DOMINI (shield) TURRIS (shield) FORTISSIMA, Prince-Elector Johann I of Saxony facing right, clothed in royal attire with cap, clutching sword in right hand over right shoulder; IOAN-NES across fields, 1530 25 JULY around above. An attractive example of this yellow-golden double ducat with remarkably few signs of handling and an enduringly sharp strike. Produced to commemorate the centenary of the Augsburg Confession, where Martin Luther professed that it would be "against his conscience" to recant the declarations made in his 95 Theses. Very well-produced and executed, as is commonly encountered amongst Reformation commemoratives, this piece nonetheless possesses a singular allure sure to garner spirited bidding and ample attention.
