#1 German States - Hamburg Obverse: The Annunciation Obverse Legend: AVE MARIA GRATIA. PLENA. DOMINVS Reverse: The Nativity Reverse Legend: PVER NATUS. EST. NOBI E FILIVS. DATVS. EST Note: Ref. G#1586. Prev. KM#F85. Composition: Silver Diameter: 59mm Weight: 56.5gm (1635-1668) 2 Thaler, (referred to as a Double Show Thaler or Tauftaler) The Annunciation, the announcement of Archangel Gabriel to the Blessed Virgin Mary that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus design on the front and John the Baptist, baptizing Jesus Christ with three people watching on the back! Our research tells us that the front has a Latin legend that means "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women" and the legend on the back may be German and might mean "Christ receiving his baptism from the leader in the Jordan" #2 German States - 1619 - Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel Thaler Obverse: With D.G. in titles Reverse: Wildman with tree in right hand Note: Dav.#6303. Composition: Silver This is a piece that I purchased raw and submitted to NGC. If came back as MS62. The planchet flaw really adds character in my opinion. #3 German States - 1587 - Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel Thaler Goslar Mint MB-190, DAV-9064, Welter 578 Lichttaler - Light Thaler Obverse: 6-fold shield of arms, 3 helmets above, titles of Julius Reverse: Wildman facing holding lit candle in right hand, tree trunk in left divides date Ruler: Julius Composition: Silver #4 German States - 1551 - Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel 1/4 Thaler Heinrich the Younger 1514-1568 Obverse: Bust Left Reverse: Wildman in the center. If this 3rd edition of SC of German Coins 1501-Present is accurate, the mint may be Riechenberg. Apparently somewhere on that coin should be "stag rampant left holding ingot hook." Or maybe the Goslar mint - some sort of symbol that looks like a necklace (a V shape) with a cactus hanging at the lower part of the V. One of the earliest Wildman coins. #5 Spain - 1808 - 30 Sueldos Balearic Islands, Majorca Obverse: Value, ruler, date Reverse: Diamond shaped arms Ruler: Ferdinand VII Composition: Silver #6 German States - Friedberg - 1747 CPS 2/3 Thaler Obverse: Crowned double-headed eagle with two shields below and one on breast Reverse: St. George standing on dragon, shields at left and right Ruler: Johann Eitel II Composition: Silver #7 George IV. 1821 Bronze Medal.
