Sweden (Livonia) Solidus (Schilling, Silins) 1634 to 1654

Swedish Livonia was a dominion of the Swedish Empire from 1629 until 1721. The territory, which constituted the southern part of modern Estonia and the northern part of modern Latvia (the Vidzeme region), represented the conquest of the major part of the Polish-Lithuanian Duchy of Livonia during the 1600-1629 Polish-Swedish War. Parts of Livonia and the city of Riga were under Swedish control as early as 1621. These coins were minted during the reign of Christina (1632-1654), Queen of Sweden, the only surviving legitimate child of King Gustav II Adolph.

Coins minted 1634 are extremely rare. The remaining catalog values are shown below. To reach these values the strike must be centered enough to read the lettering. Often you see these coins with only partial letters showing.
