Product Details

Proof Coins Fresh from the Austrian Mint! Each coin contains .7516 oz of pure Silver!
These are re-strikes of the famous Maria Theresa Thaler.
These popular coins come from the world renowned Austrian Mint, and are in Proof condition.

Maria Theresa succeded her father, Charles VI as ruler of the Kingdoms of Austria and Hungary in 1740. During her 40 year reign, she defended her empire successfully in the War of Austrian Succession. The silver Thaler was the currency of the empire and its dominions. This coin was one of the most important trade coins in Europe, and one of the best known in the world. The Austrian Thaler and the Spanish 8 Reales were the basis for the silver dollar which was adopted by the fledgling United States under the Mint Act of 1792. In fact, the word "dollar" is derived from the German/Austrian word "Thaler".
Each of these examples come sealed in a handsome information card from the Austrian Mint.

      Comments about Austria 1780 Maria Theresa Silver Thaler Proof (w/Card):

      You buy this coin to know how it all started. No - it is not an original 1780 Thaler. This is a restrike of an historic coin. But it has all of the elements you enjoy in a freshly minted coin - shiny and clean and undeniable regal. I purchased this proof just to see the raw rough cuts of an "old school" imperfect coin die. Compare this to a modern 2014 Canadian Maple leaf - and it looks like a kid with a crayon. But what an amazing crayon. Buy a couple for your collection as flawless conditions and a stack of the "Almost Uncirculated" for that dinged up flavor. If anything else - it compliments that Canadian Maple Leaf, Australian Kookaburra and Chinese Panda to see just how beautiful modern crafting has become in under 235 years.
