Why buy this Silver 1300-1400 Austria Hand Heller

This Austrian Silver 1300-1400 Hand Heller would be a beautiful addition to many collectors, including those with interests in the history of money and the history of art. This coin was considered taboo for its time because it shows God, but does not portray Him. It was also the first coin that numismatic historians know to have featured an image of God without also including an image of a devotional figure or monarch. Hellers from this period may have anywhere from .3 to .6g of silver as the silver content of the coin deteriorated in later years with the inclusion of more copper.

Traditional Hand of God design

The obverse of the coin features an open hand, which is meant to represent the hand of God. Long used on coinage, albeit in earlier times with a fuller presentation of God, the image has become a symbol of luck and blessings for anyone who owns it. The reverse also features Christian imagery, a cross.

Very Fine 25

This coin earned a grade of Very Fine 25 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Coins that receive this grade have nearly complete details but have considerable softness in some areas. Protecting this historical relic even further is a special story vault. It contains a story card relating its interesting history.
