Why add this Silver Hand Heller struck in 1300-1400 Medieval Austria to your collection?

The Hand Heller was the silver penny of Medieval Europe, which was slowly debased over time to evolve into the copper "Pfenning" (penny). The coin is named for its depiction of a hand, which symbolized the Right Hand of God. Imagery of the coin was unusual at the time, lacking a figured representation of God, or any other figure such as a king or pope. The hand imagery became associated with bringing or holding good luck and blessings from God. This Austrian Hand Heller was struck at the Hall Mint with a diameter measuring 16-18 mm and a weight of 0.3-0.6 grams.

Imagery Symbolic of God's Blessing

The depiction of the Right Hand of God with the palm facing outward on the obverse represents the act of God offering a divine blessing. The reverse depicts an image also religious in theme, of a cross with equal length arms, with a pellet at the end of each.
