Swedish Pommerania Gold at Lanz-Trieste Sale
December 15, 2008

Pommerania Under Swedish Rule 1706 Double Ducat

On January 5, 2009, Numismatik Lanz Munchen and Numismatica Bernardi Trieste will be offering Auction 145 with a bevy of numismatic rarities.

One that caught my eye was lot 172, pictured above. This Swedish ruled Pommerania double ducat of 1706 has a very striking design and it is one which we have not illustrated in the Standard Catalog series. We have considered this piece to be medallic and it was formerly listed as KM#M5 in the Standard Catalog of World Gold Coins, but currently has been moved to our Unusual World Coins book as X#M5.

Either way, it is a rare piece and this is an excellent XF example. It's well worth the auction estimate of 10,000 Euro, but we will see what the market bears when it crosses the block in January.
