Obverse

Full standing figure of Mars (god of war) in classical helmet and armor with spear and oval shield. Legend above and date below.

NOTE: This one and the other Daler SM coins minted during 1715-1719 were emergency coins struck during a period of hard economic crisis. Even if they bear the value of a daler they were strongly underweight (a daler in copper would have to weigh about 756 grams) that's why their minting ceased in 1719. However these emergency coins were used for a long time, before with value of 1 öre KM, and then of 1/12 skilling.
