Poland Groschen 1603 to 1627
Zygmunt (Sigismund) III ruled Poland between 1587 and 1632. Most of his coins bore his image, but this one shows only his crown. The imperial eagle appears on the back.
Here are some catalog prices for all dates of these coins, except as noted:
worn: $12 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $70
well preserved: $200
Groschens with dates 1601, 1603 and 1608 are more rare and catalog for $350 in average circulated condition. If you find a coin with no date, it is also somewhat rare, cataloging near $150 in average circulated.
The coin in our picture comes from Beast Coins, and CoinQuest thanks them for use of their coin image.
Be sure to check our Important Terminology page to understand how catalog values work.
