An impressive and very well preserved medal. Some slight metal porosity, very minor marks and a very slight edge mark, otherwise, good extremely fine.

Born in 1741 Joseph II developed into an enlightened monarch who, never-the-less, was also rather despotic in his actions and thoughts. He was made emperor and co-regent with his mother upon the death of his father, but she kept him under fairly tight control until her own death in 1780. In the end his policies were mostly too enlightened, or too bound with his own autocratic ideas, to be popular: many were canceled or changed after his death.
