Why purchase this Austria Hall Silver Hand Heller struck 1300-1400?

The Heller denomination was minted and heavily circulated throughout the Holy Roman Empire and Central Europe beginning in the 13th century. The Hand Heller design is of particular interest to collectors for its unique imagery, as the first coin to portray God without actually showing his figure, nor the recipient of his blessing. Commonly known as the "Hand of God," the coin was thought to bring good luck and God's blessings to those who possessed the coin. Struck in the town of Hall, the coin measures 16-18 mm in diameter, with a weight ranging from 0.3-0.6 grams.

Imagery Symbolizing God's Blessings, Luck and the Town of Hall

Palm facing forward, the Right Hand of God adorns the obverse. The reverse depicts a second religious symbol, that of a cross with a pellet ant the end of each arm. Minted in the town of Hall, now known as Schwäbisch Hall, the image of the cross and hand dominate the coat of arms of the town.
