    Austria Archbishopric of SALZBURG Max Gandolph Graf von Kuenburg Reichstaler 1670 with countermark (1681) on rev.

    In 1681 it was decreed that all Guldiner and 1/2 Guldiner circulating in Salzburg, including Salzburg's own issues, should be counterstamped to guarantee their value, for a fee of 1 Kreuzer for Guldiner and 2 Pfennig for 1/2 Guldiner. Due to the fee, only a small number of coins were submitted and the order was repealed in 1682.

    Inspired by @Chris B. Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel “death taler” struck to commemorate Augustus II the Younger, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg. Distinctive obverse features a dying tree with a skull. Reverse in Latin: born (NATUS Apr 10, 1579), ruled (REXIT 36 years), died (OBIIT Sept 17, 1666), lived (VIXIT 87 years, 5 months, 7 days). Date is a chronogram in the reverse legend (MDCLXVI).

    I’ve been collecting the 25g coins of the Latin Monetary Union (1865 - WWI). Some countries are tough in uncleaned conditions.
    The other are crowns of the Bonaparte family as rulers in Europe. I’m just missing Joseph ‘Napoleon’ as king of Naples in EF to AU.

    Dav-6362; KM-447.1. "Travel Taler" or "Ship Thaler" issue. While the exact reason for the striking of this type is unknown, there are a few hypotheses which have been accepted as plausible. The first, and most likely scenario, is that the Duke (August II) had this issue struck to commemorate his travels, which took him to locations such as Italy, Malta and England. Secondarily, some suggest that this issue may in fact be a death issue, struck upon his passing in 1666; the departing ship suggesting the Duke's final journey to the "other shore". While rather romantic, the first scenario seems far more likely.

    1617 Erfurt taler; DAV-5262, KM 19.1. Obverse features wild man and wild woman holding the Erfurt coat of arms. Reverse edge inscription: DATE CAESARIS CAESARI ET QUAE DEI DEO (Matthew 22:21 – Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's).

    Interesting to note that Martin Luther studied in Erfurt in 1501 and was ordained as a priest in the Erfurt Cathedral. Although he moved to Wittenberg in 1511, Erfurt was an early adopter of the Protestant Reformation as early as 1521.
