Congratulations on an important book :ninja:

In a 1978 book on Hedlinger that I have there are the following images related to Russia:

3 different medals of Anna, a medal for count Ostermann, one-sided (unfinished) medal of Elizabeth, and.... the FAMOUS Hedlinger rouble.

I wonder what images/information were compiled into this early book.

From Medailles et Jetons Des Numismates by Anthony Durand 1865:

1. NICOLAUS. KEDERUS. HOLMIENSIS. Buste à dr. Dessous : J. C. HEDLINGER. 1725.

NICOLAUS. KEDERUS = Niklas Keder.

HOLMIENSIS = Stockholm.

PROFERT. ANTIQUA. IN. APRICUM. = to bring forth the ancients/antiquities into the light.

S.D.G. = Soli Deo Gloria = Sole Glory to God.

Saturn unearths a vase filled with ancient medals, amongst some ruins.

By Johann Karl(Carl) Hedlinger. Swiss medal & seal engraver who was much sought after across Europe for his skills.

 

Keder, Niklas, Numismatist, scholar. Born Stockholm Sweden March 20th 1659. Student Uppsala, travelled to Estonia, Russia, Denmark, Germany, Bohemia, Italy and others.

Organized a collection of old coins at Kungl Library and was appointed 1697 to the assessor in Antiquities archives.

Here he wears a wig.

 

P.S.

The god Saturn later morphs into Father Time with the addition of an hour glass. Here, on this medal he is depicted just with his scythe.

Chretien de Merchel's 1776 book of Plates of Hedlinger's medals is now a free download from Google.

 

Well worth downloading the pdf as the images are so much better viewed using Adobe than online. This screen capture does not fully show the quality of the images but does give some indication of it.
