Why add the About Uncirculated 55 1300-1400 Austria, Hall Silver Hand Heller to your collection?
This 1300-1400 Austria, Hall Silver Hand Heller was graded by NGC as About Uncirculated 55. These coins were originally hand-struck in Hall, Austria on silver blanks but were debased with copper over time. The "Heller" denomination was the precursor to the "pennig" or penny in German-speaking Europe. The denomination was minted and circulated all over Central Europe from the beginning of the 13th century. The coin began as a nearly pure silver issue but silver content was reduced over time.
Blessings and luck
The obverse image of the coin shows the right hand of God with the palm facing forward. This depiction is unusual because there is no other representation of God or some go-between figure like a king or pope. The hand imagery became associated with bringing or holding good luck and blessings from God. The reverse image of the coin features a cross. When scholars consider the context of the two images on the coin taken together it suggests that the holder of the coin receives God's favor and protection.
