Silesia coins catalog with values

City of Swidnica

Coins minted in the city of Swidnica in Silesia in the years 1517-1526 - a vivid example of a fake to the detriment of the circulating money of a neighboring state. Swidnica half-groschen looked like a similar Polish coin, but instead of the original legend "coin of Sigismund of the Polish Kingdom", has another - "city of Swidnica Louis King of Hungary and Bohemia". Illiterate Polish population, was not interested in inscriptions and enjoyed using these coins, which were imported into the country in large quantities. Considering that the silver of the Swidnica coin was worse than the Polish one, economic intervention brought King Louis, in addition to political, also commercial dividends. In 1528 the Polish government began buying Swidnica half-groschen and melted them down.
