Swiss Cantons, Bern. ND (18th. century) silver Prize Medal, PCGS SP62. 19mm. SM-715; Haller-808.
Obverse: NEC TEMPORA PONIT, personification of Bern seated to right, radiant Eye of God above. Reverse: NEC METAS RERVM, Caduceus among symbols of science and art. Evidently a fairly scarce type, the only example of which we have been able to find record. Toned in a range of attractive colors, with a few light hairlines on the obverse justifying the assigned grade. We would estimate this piece to have been struck around 1720, based on the style of the engraving.
