Heritage sale 3026, lot 25863
Sweden 1807 riksdaler rev H3026-25863.jpg

This specimen was lot 25863 in Heritage sale 3026 (Long Beach, October 2013), where it sold for $544.03. The catalog description[1] noted, "Gustaf IV Adolph Riksdaler 1807-OL, AU55 PCGS, medium gray patina with nearly full luster, dark planchet flaw on both sides." This type was issued 1801-07 and is scarce in nice condition. Collecting Swedish coins is complicated by the multiple currency reforms the country underwent during the period. In 1798, 48 skilling = 1 riksdaler species and 2 riksdaler species = 1 ducat (the riksdaler species was 29.36 g, .878 fine silver). In 1830, 32 skilling banco = 1 riksdaler riksgald and 4 riksdaler riksgalds = 1 riksdaler species (the riksdaler species became 34 g, .750 fine silver). In 1855, the skilling was dropped and 100 ore = 4 riksdaler riksmynt = 1 riksdaler species (the riksdaler species remained unchanged). In 1873, the riksdaler species was dropped and 100 ore = 1 krona (the krona, at 7.5 g, .800 fine silver, was slightly smaller than the old riksdaler riksmynt). The system adopted in 1873 is still in use today, the Swedes having recently declined to adopt the euro.

Recorded mintage: 37,000 (lowest mintage date).

Specification: 29.36 g, .878 fine silver.

Catalog reference: KM-561; AAH-28, Dav-346.
