Maximilian was both Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire and Grandmaster of the Teutonic Order. The Teutonic Order was founded during the Crusades to safeguard the Christian pilgrims visiting the Holy Land. It was different from the other orders in that it was almost exclusively German. Already in the 16th century the order was in decline. Yet it still produced great coins.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
