Why purchase this 1637 Medieval Austria 3 Kreuzer coin of the Holy Roman Empire?

This Austrian Silver 3 Kreuzer coin was struck in Vienna in 1637, during Emperor Ferdinand III's inaugural year of his twenty-year rule of the Holy Roman Empire from 1637 until 1657. A member of the House of Habsburg, Ferdinand III is historically recognized as the last Emperor to maintain any real control over the territories of the Empire.

Remarkably Detailed Imperial Imagery

The obverse image of Ferdinand III features the wreathed and bearded Emperor facing right dressed in a cloak with an ornately styled collar. A bird in a circle below represents the Mintmark of Vienna. Inscribed "FERD III D G R I S A G H B REX" (Ferdinand III, by the Grace of God, Emperor of the Romans, always August, King of Germany, Hungary and Bohemia).

A crowned double-headed Imperial Eagle symbolizing the Holy Roman Empire is depicted on the reverse. The surrounding legend includes "1637," "3" and "ARCHID A D B C TYR," which translates from Latin as "Archduke of Austria, Duke of Burgundy, Count of Tyrol."
