This specimen was lot 3208 in Sincona sale 43 (Zurich, October 2017), where it sold for 650 CHF (aboout US$776 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Köln, Erzbistum, Friedrich II. von Saarwerden, 1371-1414 Goldgulden o. J. (1383). Deutz. Gutes sehr schön. (archbishopric of Cologne, Frederick II of Saarwerden, 1371-1414, undated goldgulden, Deutz mint. Good very fine.)"
Both the city and the archbishop of Cologne (or Koln) issued gold ducats and it takes a keen eye to tell them apart. Friedberg notes this type as fairly common.
