Ancient Coins - Austria, Salzburg. Matthaus Lang von Wellenburg, AD 1529. Silver 1/2 Kreuzer
zoom view

Denomination : Silver 1/2 Kreuzer.  Mint : Salzburg.

Date : 1529

Size : 14.9 x 16.3 mm. Weight : 0.52 grams.

Reference : Saurma 894/383

Grade : F, possibly slightly clipped.  The specimens of this type, and of the series before and after this type, illustrated by Saurma are centered on the flan in about the same way, suggesting that the coin might not be clipped but rather was just struck this way.

Obverse : Tri-lobed arms with a Cardinals hat at the top, with the date 1529 below (only the top of the numbers in the date are on the flan, but enough to be sure of the date).  I assume the three part arms are those of Mathaus Lang, and the city of Salzburg, plus one that I do not recognize.

Reverse : Blank (this is a uniface coin).
