Germany Saxony Albertine Thaler 1694 to 1733
Nice coin, Huey. You did not describe the devices, so all we have to go on are your supplied inscriptions. Your coin is certainly from the old German State of Saxony (Sachsen) and comes from the time of King Friedrich August (1694 to 1733). Several different coins can have similar inscriptions, so we have taken our best shot at yours.
All these old silver thalers are fairly rare and the biggest factor in their value is condition. Typical catalog values for your coin (if we got the right coin) might be:
average circulated: $600
well preserved: $1500
The coin in the picture comes from Manfred Olding in Osnabrück, Germany, and CoinQuest thanks them for use of their image.
Remember to refer to our Important Terminology page found on the top left side of the page, where the differences between actual value and the term 'catalog values' is explained.
