About

 

Madonna & Child Hungarian coin from 1571 graded AU 58 by NGC. In 1526, Ferdinand I of Austria inherited the Hungarian Throne. Although the coins minted by Ferdinand in Hungary were gradually changed to match those of Austria, Ferdinand knew that certain symbols, those showing the Hungarian arms and especially the Madonna with child, could not be removed from the coins without a rebellion by the people of Hungary. This is a fine example of the famous iconography and has been encapsulated and stored in a story vault case.

Observe: “Madonna & Child” in the center with mint mark: K B

Reverse: Hungarian coat of arms in the center, with legend, name, titles of the King, and date of minting.

This coin was minted at the Kremnitz Mint, the oldest working mint in the world today.
