The Millennia Collection

Lot Photo Description Realized
Lot 751
Liechtenstein. Taler, 1758. Dav-1579; Cr-2; Hozm-51. Josef Wenzel. Bust right. Reverse: Crowned crest supported by angels. Only 700 pieces struck. Prooflike fields with beautiful iridescent toning, vivid with lilac and mauve hues. NGC graded MS-65 Prooflike.

A first-rate example of this tiny central European country's contribution to the standard thaler. By issuing its own coinage, Liechtenstein showed its independence and yet demonstrated its presence as a European trading partner. Few specimens exist at this quality level.
Estimated Value $1,750 - 2,250.
Ex Irving Goodman Collection.

Lot 752
Liechtenstein. Taler, 1778. Dav-1580; Cr-6; Holzm-54. Franz Josef I. Bust right. Reverse: Crowned crest. Lustrous with pale lilac gray toning. NGC graded MS-61.

Liechtenstein has an area of just 62 square miles. Many coin-issuing areas of Europe were this small in the 18th century and earlier, but only Liechtenstein and Monaco survived as independent nations.
Estimated Value $600 - 700.
Ex Irving Goodman Collection.
