Token: Germany (Nuremberg) Krauwinckels  1543 to 1635
Token: Germany (Nuremberg) Krauwinckels 1543 to 1635

Hans Krauwinckel and his son of the same name struck a great deal of beautiful tokens over the period of their lifetimes in the late renaissance period.

While the pieces are not coins, they are a form of tokens or jetons known as 'Rechenpfennige', or 'counting money', implying that they were used in place of valuable coins to assist in accounting.

They were struck by:
Hans Krauwinckel I (from 1562 to 1586)
Damian Krauwinckel, Hans' brother (from 1543 to 1581)
Hans Krauwinckel II, Hans' son (from 1586 to 1635)

Many designs are known, and materials ranging from copper to brass, sometimes silvered or gilded, with the value mostly depending on the condition of the jeton. Cody's piece is know as a 'Markuspfennig', while another more common design has an orb in a trilobe on one side, and a rosette surrounded by three crowns and three fleur-de-lis on the other side. Approximate catalog values are below:

worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $35
well preserved: $225

For larger, thicker medal issues (not 'counting money') multiply the above values by 2.

Holed, bent or otherwise damaged coins will be worth much less than the values above. Refer to our Important Terminology page on the top left in order to properly interpret these catalog values.
