Germany Regensburg Pfennig  1785 to 1790
Germany Regensburg Pfennig 1785 to 1790

Regensburg is a city in Bavaria, Germany. Back in the 1600s and 1700s, it was a bishopric, a region run by a church bishop. The bishopric of Regensburg issued several different coins ranging from low-value hellers to high value thalers. Pfennigs are the next step up from hellers.

Crossed keys were, and still are, the symbol of Regensburg, and most of their coins carry this symbol in one form or another. The pfennigs, spelled pfennings at the time, use crossed keys, but not all pfennigs look the same as those from 1785 to 1790.

Typical catalog values are:

worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $40

The coin in our picture is in excellent condition. It sold for 40 euros, about $50 US dollars, in a 2013 auction by Künker GmbH & Co. in Osnabrück, Germany. CoinQuest thanks Künker for use of their coin photo. It is a nice one.

Coin: 17850 , Genre: Central Europe North South
