Matthäus Carl was probably born in Augsburg and became a master goldsmith in Nuremberg in 1585. He also practiced as a wax modeler and medalist, and some seventy-three medals are ascribed to him. He was active between 1584 and 1608 or 1609 and was a rival to Valentin Maler. His style of medals was influenced by Antonio Abondio and by the medalists of the Netherlands. His patrons included the Saxon court at Dresden and the elector of Brandenburg and in 1597 he struck 300 coins for Bishop Julius of Würzburg.
