$169,153.00 USD


The Salvator Mundi medals from Vienna are a fascinating piece of numismatic history. These medals were first minted in 1575 when the Council of Vienna decided to replace gifts in kind with coins specially minted for New Year's celebrations. The term "Salvator Mundi" refers to "Savior of the World," and these medals typically feature an image of Christ on one side.

Historically, these medals hold significant relevance as they were part of a tradition of presenting gifts to officials and important persons at the beginning of the new year. They are a testament to the cultural practices of the time and the importance placed on such tokens of esteem.
