Why add the Mint State 62 1300-1400 Austria Silver Hand Heller to your collection?
This 1300-1400 Austria Silver Hand Heller achieved the high collector grade of Mint State 62 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The name is derived from "haller," a reference to a Free Imperial City of the Holy Roman Empire, today known as Schwabisch Hall where this coin type was first struck. The denomination was minted and circulated in the Holy Roman Empire and Central and Eastern Europe from the beginning of the 13th century. The coin began as a nearly pure silver issue but silver content was debased over time. It was sometimes called Handelheller for its depiction of a hand on the obverse.
Divine blessings and luck in the design
The obverse of the coin features a right hand with the palm exposed. This is a depiction of the Hand of God and is unique in that there is no other representation of God or some intercessor figure, like a monarch or religious leader. The hand became associated with bringing good fortune. The reverse features a cross, which when coupled with the hand image suggests that the holder of the coin receives the blessings of Christ.
