CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Gold Medallic 2 Ducats, 1928. Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-65.
Fr-7; KMX-3; Novotny-I.B. By: Otakar Spaniel. Obverse: Saint driving plow drawn by the Devil left, miner emerging from the ground on a ladder, holding oil lamp, tree and machine surround; all within beaded square; Reverse: Coat of arms bounded by laurel branches, arms topped by St. Wenceslas holding banner and raising hand; army on horseback behind. An incredibly popular type on account of the artful design and this specimen adds charm with a supple luster. A slightly weak strike is noted, though the surfaces are not heavily marked. A lovely coin in almost all facets. To view all items from the Augustana Collection, click here.
