A gold item the same size as the thaler would weight just under two ounces. A standard silver thaler is just under an ounce.

But looking at the pictures, you don't have a coin. That's some sort of medal.

Gold plated is my guess.

There are two symbols one under each rosette, those should tell you maker and gold content/absence.

The symbol under the viewer's right rosette is "980" and it has been shot with an XRF gun, 98% pure gold not plated.. The other symbol is very cryptic and appears to just be an S or squiggly line in a circle

It is also thinner that a normal MTT restrike but radius seems about same or very close

It is my understanding that, before 1975, when it was illegal to own many gold coins in the US, it was legal to own gold medallions that were not actual coins or restrikes, and that "Maria Theresa thalers" were minted in gold at that time for the US market.

I do not think this is a restrike of a thaler but rather a copy of various thaler design elements in gold. For example I can not think of any M.T. thalers with her reign dates in the legend.
