Austria Charles I Gold Gulden (Fakes are possible) 1346 to 1370

Charles IV (1316 to 1378), originally named Wenceslaus, was the second King of Bohemia from the House of Luxembourg, and the first King of Bohemia also to become Holy Roman Emperor. This gold coin from his reign is very valuable. The inscriptions read KAROLVS DEI GRACIA and ROMANORVM ET BOEMIE REX.

worn: $3500 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $6000
well preserved: $12000

However, because it is so valuable, replicas and counterfeits abound.


Check the side-by-side image. Be sure you have a genuine coin and not a replica. It is usually not very hard to tell the difference. Be aware, however, that modern technology is making the counterfeiter's job easier. Never buy or sell a coin like this with someone you do not fully trust.
