Germany Margraves of Mahren 24 and 48 Kreuzer  1619 and 1620
Germany Margraves of Mahren 24 and 48 Kreuzer 1619 and 1620

Moravia is a historical country and now part of the Czech Republic. When these coins were struck, it was a duchy (or technically, a 'margraviate') in the Holy Roman Empire. The capital city of the margraviate was Ölmutz, known in English as Olomouc.

These are rare coins. As long as the inscriptions are legible and the design can be identified, they command a high value, as listed below:

24 KREUZER - 29 mm diameter
worn: $270 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $400
well preserved: $500

48 KREUZER - 37 mm diameter
worn: $500
average circulated: $750
well preserved: $900

Look at the beautiful toning on the 24 kreuzer in our picture. The toning brings out the pattern, making it quite readable. This coin was sold for just over $300 in an auction by Künker GmbH & Co. in Osnabrück, Germany during October 2005. It would probably be worth more today. CoinQuest thanks Künker for use of their coin image.
