CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Gilt Silver Medallic 10 Ducats, 1934. Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-62.
cf. Fr-13 (gold); KMX-21 (same); Novotny-VI.E (RR). By: Anton Ham. Obverse: St. Catherine kneeling in prayer and supplication, mining equipment before her being illuminated by the glory of God from a radiant cloud; behind her, arms of Hungary-Anjou and flowering plant, all within hexagon; Reverse: Scenes of mining operations within a hexagon, further encircled by border of beads and legend. An extremely intriguing example of the very popular type offered in gilt silver, this piece demonstrates the lovely design wonderfully in silver, and appears to be a rather RARE occurrence in this composition. A lovely piece that offers a more affordable contemporaneous piece to the famed gold 10 Ducats of this design. To view all items from the Augustana Collection, click here.
