Max Gandolph von Kuenburg. (also spelled Gandolf or Gandalf) was Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg. From 1668 to 1687. Nice job but you have to know someone. Only two of these graded at NGC, the highest graded at MS63. At PCGS only two others graded, both MS64, including this one, none finer. So, this is tied with one other coin for the finest out of four total graded in any condition at NGC and PCGS together. 350 years ago, on July 30th 1668, the Cathedral Chapter elected Maximilian Gandolph Graf von Kuenburg, originally from Graz, to become the Salzburg Archbishop. The coat of arms and inscription on many buildings such as the Cajetan Church in Salzburg, the Abbey in Seekirchen and the Maria Plain Pilgrimage Church attest to his role as founder and constructor. The former court library (Max-Gandolph Library), the Hohensalzburg castles Kuenburg bastion and the Kuenburg Palace are also associated with his name. He particularly made his mark in music history. His patronage of Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber and Georg Muffat, both excellent court musicians, helped Salzburg advance to become a musical epicenter of European ranking. During his reign, Max Gandolph engaged himself in many areas of everyday life. New public agencies and improved safety regulations ensured that the State became decidedly more involved. He was uncompromising in questions of religion with the Protestant expulsion and the persecution of witches overshadowing his reign.
