German States -- Stolberg-Wernigerode. Ducat, 1818. Fr-3363; Cr-25. Christian Friedrich, 1778-1824. Stag left. Reverse: Value and date in wreath. Struck to commemorate the golden wedding anniversary. Flan slightly wavy, light contact marks and scuff as illustrated, but sharply struck and highly lustrous. Rare. NGC graded MS-62 Prooflike.

Stolberg-Wernigerode is the second main branch of the Stolberg line. A formal division of lands between the Stolberg-Stolberg and Wernigerode branches occurred in 1645, but it is only the Wernigerode line that continued to strike coins after 1800. Their trade coin, the gold Ducat, was struck in single denomination size only, and then very sporadically from 1661 to 1824. The above coin is typical of its type, although this is more of a commemorative piece, with only 308 examples struck.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 2,000.

Realized $2,185
