Description Leopold I (the Hogmouth) gold Ducat 1683, Vienna mint, KM1325, Fr-276, AU58 NGC. Obv. Laureate and armored bust right. Rev. Crowned double-headed Imperial eagle with divided date above (16-83). Well struck with light marks, a slightly wavy flan, and some remaining luster. Leopold I was a Holy Roman Emperor who was nicknamed "the Hogmouth" because of the large, protruding, lower jaw pictured on many early Austrian coins. In truth, this was an exaggeration, though he still has a very distinct portrait. Realized $4,406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
