It's OK

By  Zach

I bought this for fun.. and wish I didn't I did not find it pleasant looking or neat looking, each their own.

  • Attractive Design
  • Historic Antecedents


  • Not As Expected

I bought this product primarily for its design and its historical antecedents. It's definitely a conversation starter and an excellent venue to introduce young people into numismatics; how coinage reflects the economic, socio-political, culture, and aesthetic values of society. I was, however, disappointed in the condition of the coins received, more XF-AU.

A real beauty!

This is a beautiful coin that will surely enhance one's collection. It has such a rich history that a book about this issue was purchased for further study. The coin that was received was in beautiful/excellent condition, certainly a BU.

Historical, but common

  • Recognized Brand
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Mint Condition


  • Common (higher mintage)

These are obviously re-strikes by the Vienna mint, but the appeal to me is in the history and the fact that some places they are still used for money. This may be a coin to give as gifts for anyone who loves history.

I just wanted one of these, I liked the design and it's so much less expensive than a cull Morgan or Peace Dollar, but similar in silver content. This round has a mirror finish, almost a proof specimen, and the edge of the coin has indented markings (which I can't read without a magnifying class at my age) which makes it unique in my estimation. A well represented specimen of the artwork of it's time.

This coin is a great value and truly exceptional. It is larger than most other contemporary silver coins, so it feels like a big piece of silver. It is also very historical, carrying a date of 1780 and struck on original dyes of the era and an exact copy of the coins produced then. It is a famous design that was used in Austria, all over Europe, by pirates, Napoleonic soldiers, and even brought by Austrian and German immigrants to colonial america and the American Revolution and 1812 war. and the design is highly attractive and ornate, containing many Austrian and Royal symbols from the era as well as designed coin edges. All parts are highly detailed with an excellent luster. I really love this coin and would definitly like to by more in the future for myself, bullion and as gifts and an item to sell, Also great for histtorical reenacting and museum display.

I was surprised by the detail and beauty of the coin upon seeing it. . And It is historical, unique, beautiful and larger than most 1 ounce silver coins. It is also marked year 1780 and made from the same design as coins of that time in Europe / Austrian Empire. It was also likely a design that made its way to the 13 US colonies or confederacy later on via trade and immigration. etc...

Very Nice Coins AU+

By  Alan

from Abilene TX


These Thalers were almost BU. I really prefer the circulated coins from north African use but they are not in stock very often. Very satisfied

Really a Nice Coin

Good Deal For a Low Price


from OH


just got these in the mail today. what a beautiful coin! the edges are also marked with designs and Austrian markings. they have a similar weight in silver as your standard Peace/Morgan silver dollar, but are less expensive and are in perfect shape. obviously they're re-strikes, but it's still cool to own a piece of history since the US "dollar" was actually based on the Austrian "Thaler"!
