For Sale/Trade

I am a passionate collector and these come from my core collection. At times, I purchase multiple coins of a certain type and over time I sell or trade these duplicates for others. Please have a look at the categories to the left and feel free to reach out to info@taleruniverse.com should you have additional questions.

Guelders, Holland (Roermond, Lowlands) Silver Snaphaan, (ND-1492-1538) (Netherlands Zutphen). 1492, the year America was discovered and the first year of the rein of Charles of Egmond who was a member of the House of Egmond and who ruled as Duke of Guelders and Count of Zutphen from 1492 to 1538. The title of Count of Zutphen historically belonged to the ruler of the Dutch province of Gelderland (Zutphen being one of the major cities in the province during the Medieval period). The line of the Counts of Zutphen became extinct in the 12th century and the title passed onto the rulers of Burgundy then from then to the King of Spain until Gelderland became one of the provinces to revolt and form the United Provinces. Obverse has a medieval knight in full battle gear on horseback, with sword drawn in full charge gallop, which gave this coin its name, “snaphaan” as knights were known for snapping up local poultry and speeding away! Early Medieval coins of this size (appx. size of U.S. Dollar) and this condition are excessively rare. Coin is undated, but 1492 was the first year of mintage. RRR, Delmonte-516, Van der Chijs(1852) Pl.18.42. AMONG THE FINEST KNOWN, RRRR. This coin has no flat spots, is well struck on a full planchet & covered with a soft, brilliant golden sunset tone. PCGS XF-40, the only one graded by PCGS or NGC.
