Spanish Netherlands. Philip IV (1621-1665). Patagon 1660 Flanders (Brugge, Vlaanderen) uncommon year

Patagon Flanders (Brugge, Vlaanderen) 1660 Delmonte 297 Vanhoudt 645-BG 27 grams .875 silver Diameter 40 mm Few patagons were minted under Philips IIII in the 1660s. It is rare to find this specific year. Obverse: Crowned Burgundian cross with firesteel at center and jewel of the Golden Fleece below, dividing legend. · PHIL · IIII · D · G · HISP · ET · INDIAR · REX · ⚜ 1660 (Brugge, Flanders) (Philip IV, by the grace of God, King of the Spains and the Indies) Reverse: Crowned shield in collar of the Golden Fleece. ARCHID · AVST · DVX · BVRG · CO · FLAN Zc (Archduke of Austria, Duke of Burgundy and Count of Flanders, etc.) Patagon — large silver coin of the Spanish Netherlands (mostly modern Belgium), issued during 1612-1711 (99 years in a row). In addition to the main denomination — 1 patagon, — smaller denominations (1/2 and 1/4 patagon, differing only in weight / size) were also issued. It is considered one of the independent types of thaler (or rather, daalder — "Dutch thaler"). The first patagons were produced in 1612 and were high-quality silver coins weighing 28.1 grams. The issuer was the Spanish (later Austrian) Netherlands, a possession of the Habsburg dynasty. Therefore, it was deliberately decided to release the coin partially inferior: due to the reduction in weight relative to the main imperial coin — the reichsthaler of the Holy Roman Empire (29.23 g). The obverse of the coin contained a crowned image of St. Andrew’s Cross (slanted Burgundian cross — Spanish colonial, naval flag in the 16th-18th centuries). Over the centuries of mass emission, patagons have spread significantly in the surrounding lands, especially in Central and Eastern Europe. As a result, to this day these coins are quite often found on the territory of Ukraine (mainly in the West), Belarus and the Baltic States. In Russia, it was not used as money — only as silver raw material for local coins. This coin was unearthed as part of a coin hoard in eastern Europe. More detailed information will be provided to the winner of the auction. Shipping from Latvia.
