Germany Hannover 1/12, 1/6, 2/3, and 1 Thaler 1838 to 1849

Nice coin, Sterling. You have a thaler (rhymes with 'dollar') from the old German State of Hannover. These were minted in fractional denominations as well. In our table below, the values shown are catalog values for coins in average circulated condition.

1/12 thaler, 19 mm diameter, 12 einen on back, $25
1/6 thaler, 22 mm diameter, VI einen on back, $80
2/3 thaler, 31 mm diameter, large 2 and 3 on back, $300
1 thaler, 34 mm diameter, XIV eine on back, $140

These values are catalog values. Use our Important Terminology page to convert catalog values to actual values.

The values shown in our summary above are good rules of thumb. Of course, if your coin is more worn, the value will be less. It is shows less wear and has good eye appeal, like the coin in our picture, it will be worth more. A fully uncirculated 1 thaler catalogs at about $600.

There are a few varieties of the 1 thaler coin which are worth mentioning. A coin dated 1843 with a reverse design that has a GEORG and MARIE without the crest is a special issure worth about $500 in averge circulated condition. Likewise a coin dated 1949 with HARZ SEGEN above the crown catalogs at about $200 in average circulated.
