THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS SILVER COIN

This coin is an official restrike of the 1780 Maria Theresa Taler made at the Austrian Mint in Vienna and authorised under Australian Law.

This particular version of the Taler was struck at Gunzburg in southern Germany in the last year of the Empress Maria Theresa's life.  Since then it has been restruck in its millions at Vienna, primarily as a trade coin.  In its heyday it was the most widely accepted silver coin in the Middle East and North Africa, becoming almost an unofficial currency in some lands of those areas,

The obverse shows a portrait of the Empress wearing the widow's veil with an inscription in Latin reading: Maria Theresa, by the Grace of God Empress, of Hungary and Bohemia Queen.

The reverse displays the imperial double-headed eagle with the Austrian shield in the centre with the quarters for Hungary, Bohemia, Burgundy and Burgau.  The inscription reads: Archduchess of Austria, Duchess of Burgundy, Countess of Tyrol 1780.
