Mint beautiful art of a rare Lithuanian half-ducat.

"Golden boratine," as Vilnius half-dukats are popularly called due to their iconographic similarity with copper shekels, is a denomination minted in Lithuania in only two vintages (1664-1665). Made to pay outstanding pay to Lithuanian troops participating in the Moscow War, among other things.

Stamped on a rolling mill, known from two basic types - with the titulature starting from the king's neck, and as on the present piece - from the ruler's forehead.

A very rare in this condition, typologically important issue.

Obverse: bust of the king in a laurel wreath, facing to the right, below it the initials T.L.B. (Titus Livius Boratini - mint manager). In the rim the titulature:
IOA CAS REX PO S.

Reverse: a halo between the duke's mitre and the monogram KHPL (Krishpin Hieronim Kirschenstein - Grand Treasurer of Lithuania). In the rim the legend:
MON AVR MAG DVC LIT 1665.

Gold, diameter ~16 mm, weight 1.72 g.
