Sweden 1 Riksdaler and 1/6 Riksdaler  1792 to 1809
Sweden 1 Riksdaler and 1/6 Riksdaler 1792 to 1809

Gustav IV Adolf was a king of Sweden who reigned from 1778 until 1809, when he voluntarily abdicated following a coup d'etat staged by the commander of his western army. The king died in 1839, in exile at a hotel in Switzerland under the fake name of Colonel Gustafsson, in great loneliness and desperation.
