80k treasure leads German coin sale

Depicting King Stephen Bthory of Poland, this 16th century artefact was the top lot at Kuenker

German auction houseKuenker's spring coinsales proved successful, held from March 8-12.

As we previously reported, the auctions' predicted highlight emerged asits star lot: a Polish numismatic gem depicting King Stephen Bthory.

Dated to 1580, the Polish coin was minted halfway through the Bthory's reign from 1576-86. Today, it is of the utmost rarity.

King Stephen himself is depicted holding a sceptre on the coin's sharply-carved surface, alongside the coats of arms of Poland and Lithuania.

Selling alongside a wealth of rarities from the Greek, Roman and other eras, the 28.36g coin carried an estimate of 80,000.

Excited bids at Kuenker saw it realise exactly 80,000.
