Germany Prussia Sieges Thaler 1871

'Sieges Thaler' means 'Victory Thaler' and it commemorates the victory of Prussia and several other German states over Napoleon III of France. This war was a primary driver to the unification of the many separate German States into the German Empire under Otto Von Bismark in 1872. German states of Bavaria, Bremen, Saxony and Wurttemburg also issued sieges thalers. This page applies only to the one from Prussia.
