Prague Groschen, Wenceslas II., 1300-1644, pack of 10 coin replics

The groschen was subdivided into twelve parvus ("small") coins with a Bohemian heraldic lion sign on the obverse.

Minting of this coin started around 1300 after silver mines had been discovered in Kutná Hora during the reign of the Bohemian king Wenceslaus II. King Wenceslaus II invited the Italian lawyer Gozzius of Orvieto to create a mining code Ius regale montanorum which also was partly was a reform of the coinage. This, and the high amount of silver found in Kutná hora resulted in the implementation of Prague groschen. Because of the high amount of silver used in the coin it became one of the most popular of the early Groschen-type coins in medieval Europe.

Auch hier wiederspreche Ich Leif. Größe, Gewicht wie Original! Einfach perfekt! Ich kann verstehen, dass sich schwere Münzen besser anfühlen... So wars aber nicht.
