Saxony 1599-HB thaler Dav-9820
This type was struck in 1592-1601 for dukes Christian II, Johann Georg and August of Saxony. The SCWC notes that this type was struck by the regent Friedrich Wilhelm von Saxe-Altenburg on behalf of the three young brothers shown on the obverse. Davenport has assigned number 9820 to the 1592-1600 issue and number 7557 to the 1601 issue but they are the same type. The coin is common for the era.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
Catalog reference: Davenport 9820.
