Austria Salzburg 2 Kreuzer (1/2 Batzen)  1697 to 1708
Austria Salzburg 2 Kreuzer (1/2 Batzen) 1697 to 1708

Johann Ernst (IO ERN) was ruler of the Archdiocese (ARCHIEPISCOPAL) of Salzburg, Austria from 1687 to 1709. He issued many large-sized coins known as thalers but this coin is a small denomination 2 kreuzer or 1/2 batzen. There are 4 kreuzer in a batzen and 120 kreuzer in a thaler.

Given a choice, most collectors will go for the large denominations if they can afford them. This leaves the kreuzer and batzen in the dust. Typical catalog values for this 2 kruezer run like this:

worn: $6 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $90

These values apply to all dates. Use our Important Terminology page to convert catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
