Sincona sale 5, lot 5
This specimen was lot 5 in Sincona sale 5 (Zurich, May 2012), where it sold for 12,750 CHF (about US$15,689 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"DEUTSCHLAND Brandenburg-Preussen, Markgrafschaft, 1417 Kurfürstentum, 1701 Königreich Friedrich III. (I.), 1688-1713. Dukat 1701. Av. FRIDER. PRIMVS. D. G. REX. BORVSSIAE. Belorbeertes Brustbild nach rechts. Rv. Vier gekrönte Monogramme (FF gegeneinander gestellt) ins Kreuz gestellt, im Zentrum Wappen, in den Winkeln R, oben 17 – 01, unten LC - S (Lorenz Christoph Schneider). 3,49 g. Selten. Gutes vorzüglich. (Brandenburg-Prussia, Frederick I (1688-1713), ducat of 1701. Obverse: laureate bust to right; reverse: four crowned monograms in a cross surround arms; "R's" in the fields, date and engraver's initials below. Rare, good extremely fine.)"
This type is listed for 1701 only and is rare. It and the accompanying types of 1701 (KM 17 and KM 19) were doubtless struck to celebrate the ascension of the elector Frederick to his new title of king of Prussia. This is the last coin which should be listed under both Prussia and Brandenburg.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 3.5 g, .986 fine gold, .110 troy oz; this specimen is 3,49 g.

Catalog reference: von Schrötter 7. Fr. 2296, KM 18.
