Georg Ludwig (George I King of England) Taler 1714-HCB MS64+ PCGS, Zellerfeld mint. Obv. Crowned arms with date above. Rev. St. Andrew with cross. A visually stunning example of this popular type, with reddish-silver toning and traces of blue around the peripheries. The fully lustrous surfaces gleam below the toning, with a few tiny marks. This is the only Mint State example certified by PCGS and NGC combined." George Ludwig was promoted to king of England on the death of his cousin Anne Stuart in 1714.
