Description

Mintage

From Henry VIII of England to Napoleon Bonaparte of France, over the centuries the dynastic destinies of some of the giants of European history were linked to the spectacularly bejewelled crown depicted in exquisite detail on the coin’s obverse. Its reverse shows an image of Otto I on the occasion of his coronation as Holy Roman Emperor at St Peter’s in Rome in 962, from when it is believed the crown dates, having most probably been made by goldsmiths in the Rhineland. Never actually a hereditary title, the Crown of the Holy Roman Empire did, however, remain in the continual possession of the Habsburgs for three and a half centuries as a result of clever diplomacy.

Struck in 986 fine gold, exclusively in Proof quality with a maximum mintage of 30,000 pieces, each coin comes in an attractive box with a numbered certificate of authenticity as well as a replica lapel pin. A prestigious collection case for the whole series of five coins may be purchased separately.
