Austria Olmutz 3 and 6 Kreuzer  1664 to 1670
Austria Olmutz 3 and 6 Kreuzer 1664 to 1670

This coin comes from bishopric Austria, specifically the town of Olmutz (Olomouc) in Moravia (now Czech Republic). The term bishopric refers to an area historically most common within the Holy Roman Empire where a bishop held the secular authority. In this case, the bishop was Karl (Carolus) II von Liechtenstein (1664 to 1695).

The coin in our picture comes from Dirk Loebbers in Wettringen, Germany where it is on sale for 85 euros (about $110 US dollars). Dirk's coin is in great shape and commands therefore a good price. Many of these coins you see are in far worse condition, and are worth much less.

The coin in the picture is a 3 kreuzer, indicated by the (3) in parenthesis on Karl II's side. A 6 kreuzer would have a (6) or (VI). Both coins are about the same size.
