Grade: XF+/AU
Reference: Hutten-Czapski 2586 (R2), Raczyński 269

A beautiful and interesting coronation medal of Augustus II with a family tree on the reverse. A propaganda medal, with a tree whose roots "proved" his kinship with the Jagiellonians, and more specifically, that the newly elected monarch of Poland is the great-grandson of Casimir IV. The genealogy, meanwhile, is accompanied by the beautiful maxim"Polonis Sangvine Iunctus," meaning "connected to the Poles by blood."

Signed in the cross-section of the arm G.W.

Very rare.

Silver, diameter 42.5 mm, weight 28.89 g.

Obverse: bust of the king in a long wig, to the right, in double border legend:
FRIDERICVS AVGVSTVS DEI GRATIA REX POLONIAE/SACRI ROMANI IMPERII ARCHIMARESCHALLVS ET ELECTOR

Reverse: Family tree from Casimir IV Jagiellon, to Frederick Augustus, in shield: ELECTVS/D 17/27 IVNII/CORONATVS/D 5/15 SEPT./M D C III CA, in rim: POLONIS SANG: VINEIVNCTVS
