Why purchase this Extremely Fine Austrian Silver Hand Heller?

The Austrian Hand Heller was the first coin to feature a non-traditional image of God, depicting the Right Hand of God with the palm facing forward, offering a blessing to the coin's holder. Though the imagery of the coin is most often associated with the Blessing of God, it is interesting to note that the image of the cross and hand are both present on the coat of arms for the town of Hall, where the coin was struck. The Hand Heller was struck with a weight of 0.3 to 0.6 grams, with a diameter ranging from 16-18 mm.

Symbolic Imagery

The obverse features the Right Hand of God, held palm out, posed as if in benediction. A cross is depicted on the reverse, with a pellet at the end of each arm.

Extremely Fine Silver Coin

This silver Hand Heller, struck 1300-1400 in Hall, Austria, featuring the Right Hand of God is graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to be Extremely Fine (XF). Coins of this grade typically exhibit strike and surface characteristics similar to that of a coin graded 40 on the Sheldon Scale. Encased in a protective NGC holder, the coin will demonstrate complete design elements, with most high points slightly flattened from circulation. NGC has noted that the coin suffers from undetermined Environmental Damage, which is likely the result of improper storage.
