Germany Brunswick 1/3 Thaler 1679 to 1698

These old coins are quite rare, Sakpa, but their collector following is limited. These two fact balance each other, giving typical values in the range of $80 to $300 US dollars. The main factors in the precise value of any one coin are wear and eye appeal, not the specific type, date, and design. Some catalog values:

worn: $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $200
well preserved: $400

The coin in our picture is a little dark and has damage near St. Andrew's head. These facts put its value toward the lower end of our $80 to $300 scale. Since you describe your coins as 'average circulated' and 'likable,' I'd guess a retail value near $140 for your coin.

These are retail values, i.e., what collectors buy them for. If you were to offer your coin for sale to a dealer, he or she would probably give you one-half of retail value. The mark-up keeps the dealer solvent.

For a good look at your coin and similar coins, go to my favorite web site for such material: MA Shops. Do a search on 1/3 thaler and look a the 100s of specimens for sale. Then note how the price varies with wear and eye appeal.

Neat coin!
