A vibrant example featuring a slightly weak strike of the popular Madonna and child design atop incredibly lustrous, honey-gold surfaces. A conditional rarity with tremendous appeal, absolutely scarce as such." Friedberg lists this type for 1503-17 and notes it as among the more available of Hungarian gold coins. Wladislaus was also king of Bohemia and Croatia. Wladislaus' successor Lajos II was killed in 1526 fighting the Turks at Mohacs, ending Hungarian independence.
