1621 Germany Taler, Brunswick Wolfenbuttel DAV-6303, Wildman NGC AU53. KM-52.1. ( THIS IS THE ONLY 1621 WILDMAN GRADED IN ANY GRADE BY NGC AS OF 11-23-2013 ). This evenly toned slightly circulated 1621 German Taler is a mixture of light and dark gray with blue and tan in the fields and multicolored tone at the margins. The devices are well outlined and sharp. The surfaces are clean with no notable abrasion marks or other distractions.

The “wild man” design was popular in Brunswick and Hannover and appeared on many different talers. Duke Freidrich Ulrich ruled from 1613 to 1634. The obverse shows a Wildman holding a tree. The Latin motto DEO ET PATRIAE means For God and Fatherland.   The reverse shows the 11-fold arms under five crests. 

The wild man, also wildman, is a mythical figure that appears in the artwork and literature of medieval Europe. It is comparable to a satyr in classical mythology and the Roman god of the woodlands. The defining characteristic of the figure is its “wildness.” From the 12th century they were depicted as being covered with hair. They appear as a supporter for the heraldic coats of arms, especially in Germany well into the 16th century.
