This type was struck 1613-28 in Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel and is among the more common thalers of the period. This specimen seems to be a product of the Goslar mint; HL are the initials of mintmaster Henning Loehr. The "wild man" design was popular in Brunswick and Hannover at the time and appeared on many different thalers. Duke Freidrich Ulrich ruled 1613-34.
