Emperor Leopold I coin is priced €50,000

HR Rauch's auction of ancient coins will be held between May 12-14, among whose highlights is this 10 Dukaten gold coin from 1675.

Estimated at a huge €50,000, the coin bears of the likeness of Leopold I, the Holy Roman Emperor and King of Germany, whose reign lasted from 1658-1705.

King Leopold's coins are regarded as among the most distinctive in ancient numismatics. Particularly unique is almost cartoon-like depiction of his Habsburg lip (or protruding lower jaw).
