Austria (Salzburg) 1/6, 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Thaler 1623 to 1653

These hefty old silver coins are extremely collectible in any condition. 'Collectible' here surely applies both to their artistic value, since these 'thalers' truly were masterpieces of renaissance coinage, and to their catalog value, which stays relevant for any condition of the coin.

1/6 THALER (1627 to 1648): 24 mm diameter
1/4 THALER (1625 to 1652): 28 mm
1/2 THALER (1624 to 1627): 33 mm
1 THALER (1623 to 1653): 39 mm

The obverse, or front of the coin, shows Madonna over the Salzburg coat of arms, while the reverse shows Saint Rupert of Salzburg. He was not the ruling bishop at the time, but founded the city of Salzburg around the year 700 AD, and he naturally became am important folk idol among the people of Salzburg.
