    Beautifull 1653 Basel AV Dukat. This coin shows the "Basilisk" on obv. this was the symbol for the City/rev. shows legend. Striking weakness in center, although coin is FDC. Dated ones are very rare, most were undated. They recently sold a magnificent 20 Dukaten 1741 for 950,000 Swiss Francs! If I had the $ Bill Gates/Warren Buffet hold....it would all be put to use buying perfect quality gold coins! john photos 1 010 (Medium).jpg john photos 1 012 (Large).jpg

    Beautiful pieces of gold art. It's neat to think that these are still in such great condition after all the years....

    Thank God, that there good people around way back then to carefully preserve them for us to enjoy today. Today, we see mints in most Countries produce all this crazy colored coinage/ have topics like super heros/ use modern art themes....blah! Imagine, back in 1680s Vienna, their mints produced tiny 1/32 Dukats up to massive 50 to 100 Dukats with classical designs. I saw a 1621 Polish 100 Dukaten commerative re:polish victory over Turks at Chocim at Stacks auction, mindblowing coin. These 10 oz. beauties were used as "presentation pieces" to give to a General for winning a battle, but I rather have the coin, then a medal.
