That is a beautiful commemorative medal, paralyze, with very intricate detail.
The Stolberg coinage with the Hirsch Motif is also very appealing.

There is one coin which I have been chasing for along time, the so-called Kammerherrntaler, minted only in 1816 and 1817. The story goes the Prussian King rejected the coinage because it his title was shortened to read. Fr. Wilh. III K.V Preuss . He interpreted this as Friedrich Wilhelm, Kammerherr von Preussen, (i.e The Groom of the Prussian Bedchamber). He did not like that, and promptly had the coinage stopped.
The coins are scarce, specially the 1817. I was able to find a 1816 but in only AG condition.

Here is an 1816 dated Kammerherrntaler.

GERMANICVS -- I only found a single nicer example that sold at auction recently for EUR 500 and that was in 2011. Apparently I'd have better luck finding pretty much any key date US coin before I ever found one of those. :)

While Googling your ultra-rare Thaler I found out that there is a Landgasthof 'König von Preußen' in the Klosterstr., Marxzell (Frauenalb), EUR 500 would rent me a room with an awesome and VERY scenic Northern Black Forest view for 4 or 5 nights. But I'd rather have the coin, at least for now, although the hotel does have its own brewery, and it IS October...

Also, what a nice Nürnberg Kreuzer, Tom. It looks to be in really good shape, well detailed and with luster.

Some really nice coins posted in this thread. And that Sachsen Thaler is really quite impressive.

Correction and expansion on my earlier post of the 1696 Thaler. The ruler, Friedrich August I, was the Elector of Saxony. His line is of the Albertine branch of the House of Wettin. The following year he became the King of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. He lost control of Poland to his cousin, Charles XII of Sweden in 1706 but regained the title in 1709, albeit in a weakened position as a protectorate of the Russian Empire.

It's so easy to do research on the internet that there's really no excuse for not learning something about the history related to the coins in your collection.

Jerome Napoleon 5 Franken 1809.

Jerome Napoleon was Napoleon's brother. Napoleon had the habit of appointing members of his family to nice jobs in the european areas he had conquered. Accordingly, he set up his brother as king of Westphalia
which comprised the duchy of Braunschweig, Hessen and parts of Hannover. Coinage in his name was issued following the taler standard, but also the french standard nominated in Francs. Jeromes' reign lasted from 1807 to 1813 when Napoleons' army was defeated at Lepzig.

Nice coin GERMANICVS. I really enjoy the historical aspect.

Here is an 1807 1/6 Thaler of Brunswick-Luneburg. As a tie in to GERMANICVS post above, this was the year that most of Bruneswick-Luneburg was merged into the Kingdom of Westphalia.
