Austria 1 Vereinsthaler  1857 to 1865
Austria 1 Vereinsthaler 1857 to 1865

'Vereinsthaler' means, loosely translated, 'association dollar', and was a denomination formed by a number of coin-striking authorities agreeing on the ratio of silver to a thaler.

This variety was minted during the reign of Franz Joseph I - he was emperor of Austria from 1848 until 1916. He was the uncle of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the assassination of whom is commonly considered a major catalyst for the first World War.

The catalog values are a bit jumpy. There were five mints striking these coins, each denoted by a mint mark of A (Vienna), B (Kremnitz), E (Carlsburg), M (Milano) or V (Venice). In general, the coins from Venice are worth more. Be sure to check the date of your coin and find the mint mark, then find the relevant value.

Any date and mint mark not especially called out will fall under the 'MOST COINS' category below:

MOST COINS:
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $40
well preserved: $75
fully uncirculated: $125

BETTER DATES (the value after the date and mint mark is for average circulated coins):
1857B: $100 average circulated
1857E: $80 avg. circulated
1857V: $225
1858E: $100
1858M: $75
1858V: $100
1859E or M: $80
1860V, 1861V, 1862V, 1863V: $100
1864V: $125
1865V: $150

From 1994 to 1996, the mint at Jablonec nad Nisou in the Czech Republic restruck the 1857A coins. These coins seem extraordinarily rare. If you have a coin in the original Jablonec Nad Nisou mint packaging, then it's very valuable.

All the values on this page are catalog values. Please see our Important Terminology page at the top left in order to properly interpret them into actual buy and sales values.

I have a different looking coin 1864 V mint mark
There are lot difference in my coin!! - Arjun
Coins dated 1864 V (struck in Vienna) look exactly like the coin in our picture, except for the mint mark and the year. The portrait is the same, the inscription is the same on both sides, and the double-headed eagle looks the same, is holding the same objects, wearing the same crown, and the same coat of arms on its chest. The catalogs note a small difference in the size of the stars on the edge of some coins dated 1864 and 1865, though obverse and reverse are normal. You likely have a replica piece, perhaps made for jewelry or maybe just as a novelty. Without seeing the coin, it's impossible to say more.
