Comments

These novodel pieces (official restrikes) were struck using the same reverse die as the official coins, as well as using the original obverse die. While the exact date these novodels were struck is unknown, they would have been struck in 1758 at the very earliest.

Because these were struck on different sized planchets to the official coin, these novodels are not just visibly larger, but also weigh more.
