How do you tell from a restrike and an original 1780 Thaler?

Thank you. That was very helpful. The difference between original and re-strike is AUST and AVST.

Mine is unfortunately the second. A re-strike Thaler.

Is it still worth anything?

The restrikes are still silver so they are at least worth bullion, if not a bit more, depending on the grade of the coin. Searching completed listings on eBay will give you a good idea of what they are currently going for.

You could also post pictures in the world grading forum - http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/...FORUM_ID=135 - to get an idea on the grade.

The vast majority of the Maria Theresas are of the restrike variety, hundreds of millions of the restrikes have been minted over the years. The restrikes are still quite collectible and they are minimally worth their silver value but frequently sell in the $20-30 range.

Actually the Royal Mint and branches of the Royal Mint also did 20th Century re strikes:

The Royal Mint, London:
1936: 150,125
1937: 3,719,415
1938: 5,086,085
1940: 3,766,391
1941: 2,002,000
1949: 500,000
1954: 2,560,000
1955: 800,000
1957: 272,429
1958: 340,171
1959: 202
1960: 213,180
1961: 749,072
Total 20,159,070

The Royal Mint, Bombay:
1941: 16,344,523

The Mint, Birmingham: (Commercial Mint under contract)
1949: 575,000
1953: 180,000
1954: 2,434,000
1955: 399,500
Total 3,488,500

Total from British Royal Mint and Branch Mints: 39,992,093 Maria Theresa Taler re strikes.

Other Mints are alleged to have been involved in 20th Century restrikes are:
Antwerp
Florence
Leningrad
Marseilles
Brussels

Reference: The 1780 Restrike Talers of Maria Theresa, by M.R. Broome,
The Doris Stockwell Memorial Papers, No.1
reprinted from the Numismatic Chronicle, 7th Series, Vol. X11, 1972.

How do you tell the difference? Basically, I wouldn't bother trying. If it is in mint condition and looks freshly minted (as mine does) I'll betcha that it's a re strike!

I have an excellent reference which tells all of the minor differences, and I have not bothered to find out. It would be an exercise in futility
