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

The Hand Heller was one of the coins most circulated throughout the Holy Roman Empire and most of the European nations in the 13th-15th centuries. Carrying imagery of the Right Hand of God, the coin was believed to bring good luck and God's blessings to owners of the coin. The coin's design represents the first time that the theme of God was portrayed on a coin in the absence of a figured image, with the implied blessing offered without the portrait of a recipient, such as a king or devotional figure. This Silver Hand Heller was struck at the Hall Mint, with a diameter measurement of 16-18 mm, and a weight of 0.3-0.6 grams.

Iconic Imagery Symbolizing the Blessing of God

The image of a hand on the obverse of the coin represents the Right Hand of God in the act of offering a blessing. The reverse continues the coin's religious theme, depicting a cross.

Professionally Graded by NGC
