Coins of the Bohemian type struck under Oldrich of Hardegg in Kłodzko

Abstract

In time of Oldrich of Hardegg († 1536), three small silver denominations copying different coins were produced in Kłodzko. While the pfennigs of the Austrian type are known mainly from hoards in the Austrian territory, the hellers of the Silesian type and the coins of the Bohemian type are documented mostly in the Czech Lands. White coins struck under Vladislaus II Jagiellon (1471–1516) served as prototypes for the copies of the Bohemian type. Issuers of the coins of the Bohemian type in Kłodzko can be easily identified from their marginal legends: there is the name of Oldrich with his title the Count of Hardegg or the Count of Kłodzko legible there. Based on iconographical analysis, analysis of hoards and information from the written sources, it is possible to judge that these coins were struck perhaps in 1512/1513–1514. Because of their extraordinary similarity with official coins, the ruler banned their production starting with March 17, 1514.

Thaler of Hieronymus Schlick preserved in the collection of the Museum of East Bohemia in Hradec Králové

Abstract

The thaler of Hieronymus Schlick struck in 1527 is presented in this article. It comes from the hoard discovered in Nové Město nad Metují in 1923. Besides the coin in the Chaura collection, it is apparently the second known specimen of this sort with the name of Louis Jagiellon in its marginal legend. It is possible to say that both pieces were evidently made of the same pair of dies.
