Cosimo III de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany 1670-1723
Fr-466, PCGS-graded MS-65
Exceptionally choice for this rarity, lustrous and sharp throughout.
The second last Grand Duke of Tuscany from the House of Medici, reigned over the region for 53 years, the longest in its history, during which he emptied the state treasury, ultimately leading to the demise of his family and dominance by the House of Lorraine. This gold coin is one of Cosimo’s most exquisite coins.
