Austria Thaler and Half Thaler (Franz II)  1792 to 1804
Austria Thaler and Half Thaler (Franz II) 1792 to 1804

There are several old thalers and half thalers that look like this one, with Roman Emperor Franz II on the front and the double headed eagle on the back. This page applies to coins dated 1792 to 1804 with inscription FRANCISCVS II D G R IMP S A GERM HV BO REX on the front.

These are rare coins and difficult to find. Here are very approximate catalog values:

HALF THALER (32 mm diameter)
worn: $80 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $150
well preserved: $320
fully uncirculated: $500
half thalers dated 1796 are more rare, multiply these values by three

THALER (40 mm diameter)
worn: $150 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $250
well preserved: $400
fully uncirculated: $800
thalers dated 1792, 1793 and 1794 are more rare, double these values
thalers dated 1797 are so rare that coin catalogs do not report their value due to lack of trading data

These old coins stand on their own merits. If you have one with exceptional condition and eye appeal, seek out a knowledgeable collector or coin dealer for an in-person appraisal.
