Germany (Prussia) 1/3, 1/6, and 1/12 Thaler  1752 to 1786
Germany (Prussia) 1/3, 1/6, and 1/12 Thaler 1752 to 1786

Thaler, pronounced like dollar but with a 't', was the primary unit of currency in the old German State of Prussia. 3 einen thaler means one-third of a thaler; 6 einen thaler means one-sixth, and so forth. Friedrich II ruled Prussia from 1740 to 1786 and his likeness appears on these coins.

It is difficult to find these fractional thalers in good condition, so the catalog values go up as condition improves. All dates and mint marks are approximately equal valued, except as noted, as follows:

3 EINEN THALER 1758 to 1786:
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $50
well preserved: $120

6 EINEN THALER 1752 to 1763:
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $80
well preserved: $150
6 einen thaler with a 'C' mint mark are more valuable, about triple these values
6 einen thaler with an 'E' mint mark are more valuable, about five times these values

6 EINEN THALER 1764 to 1778:
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $60

12 EINEN THALER 1750 to 1763:
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $80
well preserved: $120
12 einen thaler with an 'F' mint mark are more valuable, about triple these values

12 EINEN THALER 1764 to 1772:
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $40

These are catalog values for coins without problems such as cleaning, scratches, stains, spots, nicks, or gouges. Please read our Important Terminology page which describes how catalog values work. They are inflated values.
