Germany (Saxony) Thaler and 2/3 Thaler  1763
Germany (Saxony) Thaler and 2/3 Thaler 1763

These large silver coins come from the old German State of Saxony-Albertine. They show Friedrich Christian as Elector and carry the date 1763:

THALER: 41 mm diameter, about 0.8 troy ounces silver
2/3 THALER: 34 mm diameter, about 0.5 ounces silver

The coin in our picture comes from Stack's Bowers and CoinQuest thanks them for use of their coin photo. This coin has damage at the 12:00 position, having been mounted as jewelry at that point, with the mount subsequently removed. This damage sends the price very low, even though the coin itself has acceptable wear and good eye appeal. It sold for $160 US dollars during a 2008 auction.

Typical catalog values for these coins run like this:

THALER
worn: $150
average circulated: $300
well preserved: $600
fully uncirculated: $1000

2/3 THALER
worn: $80
average circulated: $150
well preserved: $300
fully uncirculated: $600

Do not forget that these are catalog values and many factors affect the actual buy and sell prices. See our Important Terminology page for an explanation of how catalog values work.
