    Description

    Sicily. Frederick II as Holy Roman Emperor (1220-1250) gold Augustale 1231-1250 XF45 NGC, Messina mint, Fr-134 (under Brindisi), MEC-515, MIR-59, Spahr-98. o IMP ROM | • CЄSAR AVG, laureate bust right / + FRIDE | RICVS, eagle left with head right. An illustrious example of this rare type struck in Messina at least until the death of Frederick in 1250 and possibly for a decade or more afterward under his son and grandson, Conrad and Conradin. The high relief of the portrait in the style of the Roman Emperors of antiquity has led to a greater degree of wear to be found on the shoulder and ear of Frederick while most of the fields and other portrait details have remained relatively unscathed. A small planchet flaw to the left of the eagle's head on the reverse, as made, is the only imperfection of note. Very rare, and highly desirable thus.
