1780 Austria Maria Theresa Silver Thaler - BU (in capsule)

Product Details

Beautiful re-strikes from the Austrian Mint! Historic Maria Theresa Thalers!
Each coin contains .7516 oz of pure Silver! Maria Theresa succeeded 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 the fledgling United States under the Mint Act of 1792. In fact, the word "dollar" is derived from the German/Austrian word "Thaler".

    Comments about 1780 Austria Maria Theresa Silver Thaler - BU (in capsule):

    I admire old coins, especially their unique design that we don't see in modern coinage anymore, so I bought a couple. These coins are beautiful. The luster is flawless, relief of the strike is good where the detailed design shows off well, and very few scratches. These coins are definitely in BU condition. Also the plastic capsule that comes in it is a plus.

    Although these are restrikes with no historic significance behind these particular pieces, they are an affordable way to own coins with old and attractive design. I will buy more because I love the way these coins look. If you're looking for silver investment, this is not for you; you're better off with other silver bullion with lower premiums. And since these are restrikes, they'll probably mint more of these 1780x dated Thalers in the future as they did in the past many times, so these coins will never be rare nor go up in numismatic value. But if you want an inexpensive silver coin that looks cool, I would highly recommend this one! Trust me, your friends will be much more interested in looking at this 1780 dated piece rather than an ASE or a Maple.
