Norway, klippe 2 skilling 1531-1532
Norway, klippe 2 skilling dated 1531-1532, struck under deposed King Christian II during his attempt to recapture Norway from King Frederik I. Christian II had to pay his troops, and he was allowed to borrow minting tools from the Commandant of Akershus castle, and to strike coins in Oslo, if he accepted a ceasefire. The coins were struck from church silver, commonly considered to come from the church of Hamar. The absence of written information about the silver casket of the patron saint of Oslo, St Halvard, after 1532, may indicate that this also was a part of the Christian II’s coin production. Very Fine condition. Very rare coin (R). S 3; NMD 7. Ex. Gerhard Whorm; Oslo Myntgalleri AS 28 November 2014 (from stock). 1,67 g.
Protocol no. 4962
