Germany Bavaria 2 Thaler  1842
Germany Bavaria 2 Thaler 1842

Neat coin, Earl!

I like this specimen from one of our favorite dealers, Westfälische Auktions Gesellschaft in Arnsberg, Germany. It has very little wear and a pleasing rose tone, especially on the reverse with Maximilian and Marie. WAG has it on sale for 300 euros, about $410 US dollars, a decent price for such a beautiful coin.

Earl's coin is a 2 thaler from the old German State of Bavaria (Bayern). Our coin catalogs call out these approximate values:

worn: $70 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $120
well preserved: $250
fully uncirculated: $400

Any coin with serious issues will be worth much less. This includes heavy scratches, gouges in the coin, or damage from being used as jewelery. Also, be sure to check out our Important Terminology page found at the top left in order to properly interpret the catalog values used on this page.
