An impressive coin commemorating the war between Prussia and Saxony of Augustus III Saxony, which went down in history as the Seven Years' War. An economic war that escalated into a real conflict in August 1756, one of the consequences of which was the intensification of Frederick II's counterfeiting activities. After the Prussians took over the mints, they continued their activities, profiting from the minting of Polish coins, which were reduced in bullion purity as the war progressed. One example of this is this five-dollar coin.

A distinctive augustd'ora "efraimek", made of low-purity gold.

Minted at the Berlin mint, backdated to 1758, with the initials Efraim (from which the popular name of Polish coins minted at Prussian mints is derived).

An exquisitely preserved coin. Only from the highest parts of the relief grated better metal showing the Ephraim interior. The abrasions, however, are so delicate as to involve virtually no metal abrasion.

Gold, diameter 24.3-25.2, weight 6.58 g
