POLAND. Danzig. Ducat, 1550. Danzig Mint. Sigismund II Augustus. NGC MS-62. Fr-2; H-Cz-Unlisted; Kop-7373 (R7); Kur-968 (R6); Gum-734. Weight: 3.54 gms. Obverse: Crowned bust of Sigismund II Augustus right; Reverse: Arms of Danzig. Emanating from the first ruler of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, this Ducat offers exciting condition that is seldom seen. The strike is rather full, with strong details, and a slight doubling effect seen at about 9 oclock on the obverse. Escaping essentially all evidence of fault or issue, this Ducat stands as a tremendous representative of Augustus Danzig gold coinage. From the Anthony J. Taraszka Collection.<p>Ex: UBS 49 (09/2000) Lot #2331.
