I haven't nailed this down exactly, but between Albrecht and his father the Hapsburg Empire was established, which lasted over 600 years. Vast areas of Germany were incorporated as well, later, at it's greatest extent, the Habsburg Empire extended far down the peninsula of Italy and the Balkan states. It was a major player in European history. The Empire is also spelled as Hapsburg, or known as the Austrian Empire was part of the Holy Roman Empire. This silver pfennig features the original 'smiley face' and appears to be uniface. I do not have any references of Medieval coinage, so I welcome any input you may have that I can incorporate here to complete the record. I have seen a similar type with significant differences that was attributing to Albert I and struck in Neustadt / Vienna for the years 1281 - 1298. Purchased from Bob Reis, he had it listed for 1287 - 1308, the end of Albrecht's reign.
