    2020 Tokelau Chronos

    https://www.pressburgmint.com/chronos-2015 I BOUGHT THE SET DIRECT, A GOOD COMPANY AND EXCELLENT SERVICE
  2. @danmc82 thank you for the advice. I have been in contact with Pampfan a few times and he has tried to help out a few times. Always great that forum members try to help out. Much appreciated
  3. @BazzaC thanks for picking up on my request. I saw @PandaCoins offers and that reminded me to put my request on here. Few and far between trying to find old one off bars.
  4. I am looking for two 1oz silver Pamp Polish animals collection bars to complete the set. The Borsuk and the Zubr Also looking for the collectors box for the set if anyone has a spare available. Thank you
  5. @fastlanwan just to wet your appetite, with one non Britannia 5oz "Longest reigning monarch" classic coin
  6. @DarkChameleon if you are looking for the dog privy, I believe Aurinum.de have them in stock. https://aurinum.de/2018-1-oz-Silver-Britannia-BU-w/Year-of-the-Dog-Privy-Mark-Dog-on-the-RIM

  8. Welcome to the forum and enjoy the journey

  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&lang=en&PHPSESSID= And once fully hooked with the collecting bug, several international auctions have them for sale often (a lottery win may help before dipping your toe in those waters). You are right to take it easy, and like myself, keep on with other options, bullion and proof PMs. Hope that this helps a bit
  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 is to measure and weigh the coin. It should be approx 28.06g and measure 40mm across. Welcome to Theresia taler land, expensive and addictive
  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 name but a few, from that date until today. They are allegedly still used as currency in some outlying areas of Arabia. The value of these Talers is dependant on the date it was minted and of course quality. An excellent source of information is available at http://www.theresia.name/en/ Talers dated between 1741 and 1779 are a lot harder to come by, and the variants are reasonably well documented in the book by John S Davenport, “European Crowns 1700-1800”. These can vary in price from €100 - €1500 per coin and are very collectible. I hope this helps a bit, they are great coins but beware of fakes and overvalued products.
