    Hello all.

    First time posting, so hello to all of you. Please be understanding if I have missed some rules or guidelines.

    So, on topic. My father is a goldsmith, and few years ago he found a coin in an old cup (trophy) of some kind. I would like your help to find the origins of this coin, as well as potential value. I did try to google, but could not come close.

    It seems that coin is from 1602.and it is silver.

    Pleas find two photos below.

    Looking forward to your help.

    Thank you. 20190526_231838.jpg

    Properly orientated too so we don't have to keep tilting our heads to read it.

    Thank you for starting the research.Yes, found something similar. But could not move any further. It seems that is has some connection with Romanian region.

    I did not see your coin in my catalog. The year was not listed there. I did do the Kronstadt search and also came up with the link in the post above this 1. Scratching my head on this 1. Could be in another catalog that contains the dates from 1599-1604 ???

    I would also ask @Siberian Man or @panzerman about this coin. They might know much more about this coin.

    Very cool and interesting coin you have here.

    The coin is a Kronstadt mint,modern day Brasov,Romania.The type was minted under Sigismund Bathory's(the enemy of my avatar actually!!!) last rule over Transylvania,1601-1602,if i'm not wrong.I've found a modern copy of the type (2-1/2) and a genuine 2 thaler piece,weighting 58 grams,in the picture below.Personaly i don't ''like'' the coin and i wouldn't consider it genuine, but for you to be 100% sure, get some expert advice on it.Try contacting Kunker,they will most likely clarify things for you! 1013747.jpg

    Any chance we can get a picture of the edge? I am leaning towards it being a modern fake.
