The rarest denomination of the 1771 trial coins.

The famous thaler with weight - the highest denomination from a trial issue, not put into circulation, whose stamps were prepared by the royal court medallicist - Jan Filip Holzhausser. The issue was made in pure silver, which was intended to prevent massive counterfeiting of Polish coinage at Prussian mints. Beautiful iconography, depicting a weighing pan under a sentence referring to the idea of new coins: DAT IUSTI PRETIUM(gives a fair price).

Here, additionally, we are dealing with a highly rare variety.

Thalers were struck with two obverse stamps - differing in the ending of the royal titulature: LITU, or as on the present piece - LITUA. This variety, was last offered at auction in Poland in 1998 (16th WCN auction). Its rarity is also evidenced by the fact that the author of the reference price list - Berezowski - valued thalers with LITU at 100.00 zlotys, and put a question mark next to LITUA (used for coins"found by exception in the trade").

A later print from the original stamps.

Beautiful state of preservation.

Silver, diameter 40.5 mm, weight 28.21 g
