Superb Medallic 10 Ducats

1051627: German States. Brunswick-Luneburg-Celle. Friedrich IV. (Prince of Luneburg, 1636-1648). 1646 AV Medallic 10 Ducats. PCGS SP61. By J. Blum. 43.83mm. 35.16gm. FRID:D.G.DX.B.eL.CO:EP.RA.PR:AR:BR: (“Friedrich by the grace of God, Duke of Brunswick and Lüneburg, bishop of Ratzeburg, head of the Archbishopric of Bremen”). Half-length bust right in double-laced collar / PAX UNA TRIUMPHIS INNUMERIS Po.; vestrum erit exemplo pacem gens postera nostro. Promovisse foris, e coluisse domi. Mercury stands on sword, holding large helmet that is being swarmed by bees; to the left a putto stands with arrow bundle, landscape with castle in background. Brockmann 598; Jungk 14.
On the event of his 72nd birthday. The date noted on the piece indicates that the medal was struck in 1646, but the text and illustration of the reverse refer to negotiations for the Peace of Westphalia (see Pax in Nummis 121). At the latest this piece would have been struck in 1648, for this is the year of Friedrich IV’s death as well as the year of the Peace of Westphalia, and the reverse text refers to both him and these negotiations in the future tense. Lustrous attractive surfaces, extremely rare. $28,500

Resting figure of Fame (Lady in the clouds). KM 2812; Fr.-514. Struck to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the reign of Franz Joseph I.
