Erik the XIV silver dalers. These are dated 1567 but are otherwise identical. The back side of the coins have Erik the XIV coat of arms. To offend the Danes he added the Danish coat of arms, two lions. These coins tell a story by them selves. Mars is revealing more of its hidden treasure every day. Stay tuned for more updates soon.
