Austria 1, 3, and 6 Kreuzer  1799 and 1800
Austria 1, 3, and 6 Kreuzer 1799 and 1800

That's King Francis II of Austria, NL, on your 3 kreuzer coin. Austria minted these only in 1799 and 1800 in 1, 3, and 6 kreuzer denominations. The patterns are the same, except, of course, for the number in the oval on the reverse. You can see the mint mark under the king's bust.

As old copper coins go, these are fairly valuable, especially when in good condition. The coin in our picture is in average circulated condition. Better preserved, the coin is worth more. More wear means less value. Also, if spots, staings, nicks, scratches, and cleanings are on the coin, its value goes way down.

NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

Here is what the catalogs say about the value of these coins. Please refer to our Important Terminology page to properly interpret what 'catalog value' means. It is a weasel word.

1 KREUZER:
worn: $6 US dollars
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $40

3 KREUZER:
worn: $8
average circulated: $12
well preserved: $50

6 KREUZER:
worn: $3
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $16

There are some better coins with special dates and mint marks that are worth more than the values above. These are, for average circulated condition:

1 kreuzer, 1800D: $40
3 kreuzer, 1799A and 1799B: $20
3 kreuzer, 1799C: $70
3 kreuzer, 1800D: $100
6 kreuzer, 1800D: $50
6 kreuzer, 1800F and 1800G: $18
