A modern silver medal from Grove Minting is the second striking in
the private issuer's 2015 Thaler series.
This Proof "48 schilling" medal features a design from the
1700’s but was struck with modern manufacturing techniques. The medal
showcases a heraldic eagle on the obverse with family regions of
Bäretswil and Baden designated in Latin.
The reverse portrays the Grove Minting coat of arms and crest
supported by lion pillars. The top edge is assayed “.999 Fine Silver."
This commemorative medal integrates design interpretations from
historic coins and other sources in Baden, Lubeck, Hamburg, and
Nurnberg. A version in brass with the same designs was the first issue
in the series.
A total of 250 silver pieces have been struck, with 500 pieces
advertised as the mintage limit; additional medals can be struck up to
that amount if the first 250 are sold.
The 1-ounce, .999 fine silver medal measures 39-millimeters in diameter.
The medal is being offered for $40 at the Grove Minting website.
