Inscription: DEI GRATIA REX BOEMIE - Questions: Value? Genuine?

Hello, I know that this coin looks too good to be an original, but I'd like to hear a professional opinion anyway. Thanks in advance!

Yes, you have identified the coin correctly as a Prague Groschen.


I am not an expert in authenticating coins, so this is only just my opinion of the matter, but it looks like the coin is a modern copy, the original was minted in silver, but your coin is showing traces of copper/bronze coloring.

The [coinquest.com] page on these neat coins appears under Web Reference to the left. We added your coin pictures at the bottom of the page (also seen directly above) as an example of a not-so-obvious fake. The yellow arrows point out marked differences in the inscriptions, although there are many departures in pattern from genuine to fake. Genuine groschens are neve perfectly circular.
