Goertz Daler Variety 13: 1717 Wett Och Wapen - Bold Reverse

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

My search for Goertz daler varieties continues, and I have found yet another. This one on the reverse of the 1717 Wett Och Wapen piece. I have been relaxing the past few weeks and stopping myself from working on my projects because I wanted to give my mind some rest after the rough school semester, but I am getting back into the swing of things now. I must admit, it is very difficult to break the habit of staying up late and waking up late. Nonetheless, I am acclimating myself to my old routines.

Reducing Financial Loss due to Coin Productoin: A Proposal

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

Seeing World coin collector's recent blog post reminded me that I forgot to upload my final paper for my college writing course. The task was to write a proposal that solved a certain issue. The proposal paper combines evaluation, analysis, and argumentative formats into one paper, so without knowledge of one or more of those formats, you will struggle to write a proposal well. I chose to propose a solution to reduce financial loss due to coin production, so I hope you all enjoy. Also, I made a 94 on this paper; not too bad if I say so myself.

Goertz Daler Variety 12: 1719 Hoppet - Bold Reverse

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

I am pretty sure this new variety is number 12 in my list, so I am excited to continue adding to the list. This new variety occurs on the 1719 Hoppet Goertz daler, which was the last Goertz daler design to be produced, and it is likely one of the most difficult to find new varieties on. I will give a brief background for the Hoppet daler to help you better understand why this daler is special in the search for varieties. The 1719 Hoppet daler had a mintage of 1,500,000, the lowest of all Goertz dalers. The majority of Hoppet dalers were not put into circulation, for they were overstruck and redenominated by the new Swedish queen, Ulrika Eleonora, at a value of one öre kopparmynt, which was much lesser than one daler silvermynt. Due to this recall and redenomination, there are not many Hoppet dalers to observe for new varieties, so I am very happy that I was able to find one.

Goertz Daler Variety 11: 1715 Cronan - Curved and Flat Crown

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

Another variety has been found to add to my growing list. It is hard to believe I have already found eleven varieties, and I am still finding more. I am very excited to see where this journey takes me, and I hope you are all enjoying it as well. This variety occurs on the obverse of the 1715 Cronan Goertz daler, specifically the crown itself. I have discussed another variety in a previous blog that occurred on the crown of the Cronan Goertz daler, the Extra Jewels Crown, so I am curious to see if this newly discovered variety occurs along with the Extra Jewels variety.

Goertz Daler Variety 10: 1718 Saturnus - Close Baby & Far Baby

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

As promised, I am writing my second blog of the evening about another variety I found on the 1718 Saturnus Goertz daler. This variety occurs on the obverse of the coin, specifically dealing with the placement of Saturnus’ figure. I found this variety a couple blogs ago when I was discussing a reverse variety on a pair of Saturnus dalers, so I will be reusing the same images I used in that blog.

Goertz Daler Variety 9: 1718 Phoebus - Three-Lined & Four-Lined Reverse

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

Another variety has been found to add to my growing list. I have spotted several while browsing through images of possible purchases but taking the time to catalog them is a different story. This variety occurs on the 1718 Phoebus Goertz daler, specifically on the reverse. I happened to come across this variety when I was looking through coin auctions online. I typically find these varieties through the exact same thing; I look around online at current auctions or availabilities, and I come across a piece that holds a trait that varies from other pieces I have observed. Finding these varieties is difficult sometimes, but it is also very rewarding.

Goertz Daler Variety 8: 1718 Saturnus - Weak Reverse

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

An eighth variety has been found! I apologize for my inactivity - balancing this year's schoolwork and my personal life is a difficult task. I decided to take a full college course load along with a couple normal high school classes, so the work has been quite strenuous. I have also been working diligently on a piece that holds a special place with me; I am hoping to get it published when I complete it. Nonetheless, I am back to looking for varieties.

Goertz Daler Variety 7: 1715 Cronan - Extra Jewels

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

Yet another variety has been found, ironically on another Eric P. Newman piece. I finally finished a large project I had been working on, so I have more time to dedicate to my search. I am still very excited about the previous variety I found, and I plan on contacting individuals with more knowledge than I possess to prove my conclusion correct or incorrect. For now, I am going to continue my search.

Goertz Daler Variety 6: 1716 Publica Fide - The Reengraved Die

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

Upon reviewing 1716 Publica Fide pieces for my previous blog, I found another very neat and peculiar reverse variety. If you have not read my previous blog, I strongly encourage you to read it because I am going to use information from its body to draw conclusions in this blog.

Goertz Daler Variety 5: 1716 Publica Fide - Long Serif

Young Numismatists Exchange | Oobie

The search for Goertz daler varieties persists . . . this time the discovery is on the 1716 Publica Fide, or Public Trust, design. When searching the web for any fellow Goertz variety hunters, I was surprised to find one Swedish website article covering several discovered varieties, mostly on the Publica Fide piece. The website is in Swedish, so it was difficult for me to understand the words, but thankfully, images were included. None of the varieties that the individual found were like ones that I have found, but it was interesting to see another individual's take on the search for them.
