Germany Bavaria Thaler 1828
Ludwig must have been a family man. The catalogs call this coin 'blessings of heaven on the royal family.' You have an old Thaler (pronounced like 'dollar' but with a 'th') from the German State of Bavaria.
The coin in our picture comes from Detlev Hoelscher, a respected coin dealer in Enger, Germany. Detlev's coin is in very nice condition, with almost no wear but a few discolorations. As such, Detlev's price is 265 euros, about $340 US dollars. This is a good retail price. If your coin looks about the same as Detlev's, and you were to sell your coin to him or any other reputable dealer, expect to get an offer of about one-half retail. This markup keeps the dealers in business.
CoinQuest thanks Detlev Hoelscher for use of this coin image.
Please resist all temptation to clean your coin to 'make it look better.'
NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.
Approximate catalog values are listed below:
worn: $50 US dollars
average circulated: $125
well preserved: $250
fully uncirculated: $400 and up
These are catalog values - refer to our 'Important Terminology' page found on the top left in order to properly interpret these values. Coins with damage, cleanings or other problems will be worth much less.
