Austria Thalers of Charles (Carol) VI  1711 to 1740
Austria Thalers of Charles (Carol) VI 1711 to 1740

King Charles VI ruled Austria from 1711 to 1740. His large silver coinage has several variations but a common theme:

- Portrait of the king with curly locks
- Double-headed imperial eagle
- Inscription CAROL or CAROLVS
- Inscription AVSTRIAE or AVST

If your silver coin has these characteristics and is dated between 1711 and 1740, then it is covered on this page.

The denominations are:

THALER: large coin, more than 40 mm diameter
1/2 THALER: about 33 mm diameter
1/4 THALER: about 30 mm diameter with fraction 1/4 under the eagle

With one exception noted below, values of these coins run approximately as follows:

THALER:
worn: $50 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $120
well preserved: $350
fully uncirculated: $600

1/2 THALER:

fully uncirculated: $500

1/4 THALER:
