Title Kaiser Karl Coronation medal as King of Hungary
Nationality Hungarian
Period 1917
Price £30.00

This commemorates the coronation of Karl IV in Budapest on 30 December 1916. He was the last of the Habsburgs to rule as King of Hungary and Emperor of Austria. The medal shows him on horseback in front of a gathering of Hungarian nobility, wearing the St Stephen's crown with the bent cross. He reigned for two years (until 1918).

This uniface medal is made of zinc with a bronze finish and measures approximately 62mm high. It is typical of mid to late-war production as the traditional soft metals were needed for armaments.

The condition is excellent for the age, with a small patch of corrosion on the left hand side of the medal.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
