Why purchase this Mint State Silver 3 Kreuzer coin of Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I in Story Vault Holder?

Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I is memorialized on this Austrian 3 Kreuzer coin. Leopold was known for a facial deformity known as mandibular prognathism, a condition in which the lower jaw is longer than the upper. The genetic defect is thought to be the result of cousins marrying cousins over many generations in the House of Habsburg.

Renaissance Style Imagery

The obverse features an exceptionally detailed profile image of Emperor Leopold I adorned with a wreath, with his lower jaw exaggerated, portraying the genetic deformity for which he was given the nickname "Hog Mouth." The image is framed by a Latin inscription "LEOPOLDVS.D.G.R.I.S.A.G.H.B.R." meaning "Leopold, by the Grace of God, Emperor of the Romans, always August, King of Germany, Hungary and Bohemia."

The reverse will depict either the Imperial Double Eagle (the symbol for the Holy Roman Empire) or the Habsburg coat of arms, encircled by the date and the Latin inscription "ARCHID.AVS.DVX B.CO.TYR" which represents "Archduke of Austria, Duke of Burgundy, Count of Tyrol."
