  1. @robinvonbrex I contacted the South Africa Mint and their reply was "Hi Mark, The mint only issued coins with 2 ears. Early marketing images were made available to our dealers prior to production which had the single (flat) ear but were never produced. We have made the correct images available to our dealers prior to launch but it seems as if some of them have not updated their marketing collateral. Thank you for bringing this to our attention we will contact our dealers again to avoid any confusion." There was an advert in one of the local Gazettes regarding the upcoming "
  2. Only 1 One Kilo coin in my collection but I think it is one of the better ones made, 2015 Longest Reigning monarch along with a couple of the 5oz mini versions

  10. The spots could be anything from typical tarnishing to PVC on the coin. Some people advise using acetone to clean PVC from a coin, but I am very wary of this idea. The weight certainly falls within typical parameters so all good there. As for purchasing Theresia Talers, older versions and brand new re-strikes are always for sale on eBay.co.uk, eBay.at, eBay.de, and eBay.com Some harder to find versions can be found on MA shops https://www.ma-shops.co.uk/shops/search.php?searchstr=Theresia+taler&firstVisit=2&catid=6&pricemin=&pricemax=&submitBtn=Search&am
  11. @silenceissilver you have a very nice quality coin there and the price you paid, in my opinion, is a good deal. My suggestion is not to try and clean the coin, it won’t devalue it as it is. 243 years old and still looking good ! Beware the taler collecting bug 🤪
  12. @RacerCool those boxes are individually made to order at this link http://www.distinctivehandmadeboxes.com/ An advert for it is found on a blog (link below) https://www.silvertrader.uk/blog-news-and-product-reviews/page/2/
  13. @silenceissilver dependent on condition, the price you paid is good. Keep in mind the bullion value is only around £9, but the numismatic value is way way higher. I have attached two photos of the 1776 madonnenthaler, the worst condition version sold for €49.99 recently on MA shops, and the better version for around €220 on a Slovakian auction in 2015 (described as “about EF). I guess this is the same version coin as the one you purchased. These coins are all typically .833 silver with a slight change to .835 in versions from Milan. An easy method to check for authenticity
  14. The source photo for this advert looks like it was doctored from a blog on Silvertraders site. I bought a few of these boxes after discussion with Martin. https://www.silvertrader.uk/1-kilogram-silver-bullion-bar-limited-edition-case/ Good detective work from all involved 👍
  15. @silenceissilver if you had further details I could give you an approximation of value, but it is a very varied, and widely produced coin. Theresia Talers are still available, as re-strikes, from the Austria mint at €26.64 https://www.muenzeoesterreich.at/eng/produkte/maria-theresa-taler-proof, eBay, and many dealers, however a genuine 1780 taler could be worth thousands (only 2 specimens known to exist of one version). The majority of Maria Theresia Talers are dated 1780 (the date of her death) and have been produced at many mints, from Vienna Milan, Paris London and Birmingham to
