Why purchase this 3 Kreuzer coin struck for Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II?

The Holy Roman Empire, a collection of central European states, was led by a member of the House of Habsburg from 1415 until 1740, the longest familial possession of the title in the Empire's history. This Silver 3 Kreuzer coin of Medieval Austria was struck in Prague, 1627, for the eighth of the Habsburg emperors, Ferdinand II.

Impressive Imperial Portrait

Ferdinand II's right facing laureate image is framed in a circle on the obverse, with the mark of the Prague Mint below. Inscribed "FERDI II D G R I S A G H B REX," meaning "Ferdinand II, by the Grace of God, Emperor of the Romans, always August, King of Germany, Hungary, and Bohemia."

The reverse features an emblem representing the Holy Roman Empire, a crowned double-headed Reichsadler (Imperial Eagle), located above the coin's denomination "3." The Latin legend surrounding the image stands for "Archduke of Austria, Duke of Burgundy, Count of Tyrol," with the year inscribed as simply "627."
