    A Remarkable Goldgulden of the Last Capetian Ruler of Hungary

    Maria of Anjou (1382-95) Goldgulden 1387-95, Fr-8, Huszar-564, Rethy-111, MS63 NGC. Obv. + MARIЄ • DЄI • G • R • VnGARIЄ, arms of Hungary-Anjou in tressure within hexalobe. Rev. S • LADISL | AVS • RЄ, St. Ladislaus standing facing, an axe in his right hand and an orb in his left; a lis in the right field. A bright and lustrous example, featuring an exacting strike and a problem-free flan. Maria's arms are particularly sharp. The only hints of weakness are at the rims. Maria's reign as the last of the Capetian line of Hungarian monarchs was a troubled one. Her mother ruled as regent in her minority until her marriage in 1385 to Duke Sigismund of Luxemburg. Within the year, she was overthrown by her agnate, Charles II (King of Naples until 1385). Upon his death in February of 1386, she was imprisoned by Neapolitan partisans until freed by her husband in 1387. While co-ruler with Sigismund, Maria retained her own seal; it is believed coins were struck both in her name and Sigismund's until her death in a riding accident in 1395.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
