Description Prussia. Friedrich Wilhelm & Sophia Dorothea gold Ducat 1706-HFH, Magdeburg mint, Fr-2314, MS61 NGC. A lustrous and boldly struck specimen with full definition from the legends to the central hair curls on the conjoined busts. As can be seen on nearly all surviving examples, the flan undulates gently with the largest appearance being evident in the field just to the left of the obverse portraits. A small rim imperfection at 12:00 (likely as struck) is the only visual disruption that catches the eye. A popular type that was struck to commemorate the marriage between Prince (later King) Friedrich Wilhelm and Sophie Dorothea, Princess of Hannover on November 28, 1706. Realized $5,875.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
