    DOCTOR MARTIN LUTHER / GEB. D. 10 NOV. 1483 GEST.

    Whiting 580; Brozatus 1200; Sommer A-203. PCGS SP-63. Extremely lustrous and prooflike, with some subtle peripheral toning and great relief on Martin Luther's portrait. The only such example of the type in the PCGS census.


    An individual celebrated each century on the anniversaries of the Protestant Reformation which he helped to bring about, Martin Luther is the focus of this engaging medal, featuring his facing bust on one side and his monumental act on the other—that of nailing his Ninety-Five Theses to doors of Wittenberg Cathedral in 1517.
