Description Andrzej Trzebicki Medallic gold 10 Ducats 1677, Hcz-4050 (AR only R7), 41mm, 34.752g, AU58 NGC. Boldly struck, and lustrous, with extremely high relief. The obverse has a portrait of Andrzej Trzebicki (Bishop of Krakow) facing right, while the reverse has a rather whimsical image of a goose facing left, with the date below in Roman numerals. The designer of this impressive piece was Johann Hohn, a German engraver working with the mint at Danzig, and also with various other German mints. We can find no record of an example in gold, either at auction, or in numismatic reference books. Exceedingly rare, and certain to be one of the true highlight items of the Eric P. Newman Collection sale of world coins. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $58,750.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
