It is believed that this EXTREMELY RARE survivor is the finest known of this desirable type and will repay the most careful study.emPortraying Carlos I (later Emperor Charles V) and his mentally ill mother Juana la Loca, this coin of the Barcelona Mint emphasizes their titles as Counts of Barcelona, and by extension recalls the Mediterranean empire of Aragon before the hegemony of Castile overshadowed the other regions of Spain. The Double Principat was equal to the Gold Corona, Escudo or Double Ducado./em Ex: Stacks Auction January 14, 2008, Lot # 3330.
