Medieval Germany Kaufbeuren Thaler 1542 to 1548

Kaufbeuren is a German city in southwest Bavaria. It became a free imperial city in 1268 and was subsumed into Bavaria in 1803. King Charles (Carolvs) V authorized coins starting in 1540. There are several variations of this coin, including, for instance, the alternate spelling Karolvs) in our picture and half-thaler issues.

The coin in our picture comes from Heritage Auctions where it sold recently for about $400 US dollars to a collector of medieval coinage. CoinQuest thanks Heritage for use of their coin photo.

Value of this coin changes with the variations mentioned above, as well as with condition, or state of preservation. G should take his or her coin to a reputable coin dealer (look here to find one) and get as much information as possible.

Here are some very approximate catalog values for this coin:

worn: $350 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $500
well preserved: $2000

The necklace loop that G mentions will surely detract significantly from the value of the coin. There is a similar coin from a neighboring city at this CoinQuest link.
