Sweden (Emergency) 1 Daler Phoebvs  1718
Sweden (Emergency) 1 Daler Phoebvs 1718

Sue sent us a message with a picture of an old Swedish daler silvermynt issued as 'emergency funds' by King Karl XII during the Great Nordic war, 1700 to 1721. According to this comprehensive web page, Karl's extra money ended up causing inflation. Hmmmm.

The catalogs list this coin with Phoebus, the Greek sun god, as follows:

worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $35
well preserved (like our picture): $70

The coin in our picture comes from Münzenhandlung Brom in Berlin, and CoinQuest thanks Münzenhandlung Brom for use of their image.
