Why purchase this Leopold I Silver 3 Kreuzer coin?

The Holy Roman Empire was ruled by a member of the royal House of Habsburg from 1438-1740, with Leopold I ruler from 1658-1705. The second son of Ferdinand III, Leopold became the heir apparent in 1654, upon the unexpected death of his elder brother Ferdinand IV due to smallpox. Measuring between 19.5-22 mm in diameter, the 3 Kreuzer silver coin of Leopold has a weight range of 1.5-1.7 grams.

Portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor

On the obverse, the Latin legend "LEOPOLDVS.D.G.R.I.S.A.G.H.B.R." which translates as "Leopold, by the Grace of God, Emperor of the Romans, always August, King of Germany, Hungary and Bohemia," surrounds the armored, draped and wreathed image of Leopold I facing right.

The reverse illustrates either the Habsburg Royal Coat of Arms, or the Holy Roman Imperial crest of the double headed eagle with a crown above. Inscriptions describe additional titles held by the Emperor of "ARCHID.AVS.DVX B.CO.TYR" (Archduke of Austria, Duke of Burgundy, Count of Tyrol) along with the date of issue.
