What might this medallion be?

Hi guys, I've bought this medallion from an auction, at first glance it looked good but I still don't know what is it and what's the worth of it.

Here it is: http://bit.ly/2qQ4r5K http://bit.ly/2rOeViZ

Did a little research on internet, found similar medallions issued by the same foundation but couldn't saw this one anywhere.

Thanks for your help

Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel 1635 Thaler – Frederick Ulrich? via /r/numismatics


Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel 1635 Thaler – Frederick Ulrich?

Hi. I've got this thaler with the name FRIDERIC VLRIC D.G. DUX BRVNS ET LV. It's dated 1635 but Frederick's wikipedia page says he died in August 1634.

Could it be that there were coins minted in the duke's name after his death? Did they get the date wrong by accident? Or is the coin fake?
