Germany (Frankfurt) Goldgulden (Matthias) 1618 and 1619

This is an amazing goldgulden from the German Free State of Frankfurt. St. John (of the Bible) is shown on the front, and the imperial double-headed eagle on the back. Matthias (1557 - 1619) was Holy Roman Emperor at the time.

The coin pictured on this page is a wonderful example from Kuenker. It sold for 525 euros (about $600 US dollars) during a 2010 auction. As always, CoinQuest is indebted to Kunker for use of their coin photo.

worn: $200 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $800
well preserved: $1500

The images supplied by requester CreamIce were not good enough to tell for sure, but it is very likely that his or her coin is a replica (worth zero). The surfaces are mushy and un-natural, and the pattern is substantially different than the Kunker example. We have included a close-up of the Kunker coin below for comparison.

Coin: 20673 , Genre: Central Europe North South
