Germany Erbach Thaler  1623 and 1624
Germany Erbach Thaler 1623 and 1624

Yo, Paul -- Have you considered a career in numismatics? Your description of this nice old thaler from the German State of Erbach is superb. You could be composing catalog entries for a top-shelf auction house, such as Dr. Busso Peus Nachfolger in Frankfurt. The coin in our picture comes from there. It sold for 330 euros (about $450 US dollars) during a 2014 auction.

CoinQuest thanks Dr. Nachfolger for use of his coin photo. It is a beautiful coin.

Catalog values for these coins run like this:

worn: $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $400
well preserved: $1000

Remember these are catalog values which must be properly interpreted. Old coins like this one stand on their own merits, so prices can vary widely depending on subjective factors such as eye appeal. If you have a nice-looking example of this coin, take it to a knowledgeable collector or professional coin dealer for an in-person appraisal. Damage, such as scratches, stains, cleanings, nicks, gouges and the like will lower value substantially. See our Terminology page.
