Top Pop : this is the only graded example ! From the Clifton-Wild collection acquired during Stack's sale of December 1995, n°820; previously from the Crédit de la Bourse sale, April 1992, n°806 and previously from the Julian Ursyn Niemcewicz collection and maybe from the Virgil Brand collection (who owned a 70, an 80 and a 100 ducats coins)
PCGS AU50. Light and regular wear on reliefs with small handling marks in the fields. Beautiful golden reflections around the reliefs. Impressive majestic bust. Exceptional museum coin ! Almost uncirculated.

By Samuel Amman, engraver (SA) and Jakub Jakubson Von Emden (II-VE), director of the Bromberg mint. Amman previously worked at the Danzig mint from 1610 to 1613, where his engravings were very neat. Exceptional in its size and beauty, this prestigious strike was probably created after the Battle of Khotyn during which the Polish-Lithuanian, who were catholics, defeated the Ottoman, who were muslims. It was the first major victory marking the end of the Ottoman expansion.
