Set Description



The House of Habsburg was one of the most important royal houses of Europe and is best known for being an origin of all of the formally elected Holy Roman Emperors between 1438 and 1740, as well as rulers of the Austrian and Spanish Empires and several other countries. Originally from Switzerland, the dynasty first reigned in Austria, which they ruled for over six centuries. A series of dynastic marriages brought Burgundy, Spain, Bohemia, Hungary, and other territories into the inheritance. In the 16th century the family separated into the senior Habsburg Spain and the junior Hapsburg Austrian branches. As royal houses are by convention determined via the male line, technically the reigning branches of the House of Habsburg became extinct in the 18th century.

The Spanish branch ended upon the death of Charles II in 1700 and was replaced by the Anjou branch of the House of Bourbon in the person of his great-nephew Philip V. The Austrian branch went extinct in 1780 with the death of Empress Maria Theresa and was succeeded by the Vaudemont branch of the House of Lorraine in the person of her son Joseph II. The new successor house styled itself as House of Hapsburg-Lorraine I have spent the past 4 years refocusing my collection to collect 16-19th century Talers from the Hapsburg Holy Roman Empire, aiming to attain quality pieces reflective of the respective era. This is my passion. I find the Hapsburg designs along with the German and Swiss as the most appealing in numismatics, where cutting edge minting technology of the time captured the essence of the dynasty.
2009 Registry Award for Best World Custom Set

Judge's comments: "The name Habsburg is nearly synonymous with talers, those Old World silver crowns. This handsome collection includes several dozen pieces ranging from the 16th Century to end of the Austrian Empire in World War I. Represented are numerous rulers, states and mints. Each coin is illustrated and includes a brief outline of numismatic information. This collection presents some real masterpieces of the engraver’s art and reveals the progression of minting technology over 300+ years."

Set Goals

I am aiming to put together a broad representative set of 16-19th century, Holy Roman Empire Talers. The set is dynamic with a goal of continuously upgrading its quality.Checkout The Taler Universe Website as it expands on the history involving the Holy Roman Empire and the Habsburgs as well as displaying the entire collection.

View Coin Archduke Sigismund of Austria (1446-1490) Guldiner AUSTRIA - TO 1600 1G 1486 TYROL DAV-8087 NGC XF 40 1486. AUSTRIA. Tyrol. Guldiner (Guldengroschen). Sigismund (1439-90). Dav-8087; Levinson IV-49a; Frey-274. First of the large silver dated talers originating from central Europe, the type is unanimously considered the father of the Taler coinage that soon followed all through central Europe. The type is relatively rare with perhaps no more than 160 known specimens most of which have been mounted or tooled. Struck from silver mined using newer technology at what had been considered depleted deposits in Tyrol. A magnificent example of the type with glossy anthracite colored tone and a cornucopia of remaining detail for the assigned grade. The Count's effigy is clear and retains much of the facial details, with a reverse that is simply breath-taking, with every shield in the periphery fully struck and well defined. The knight's banner can clearly be seen flapping in the air above his charging horse. Everything about the coin, from the iconography to the state of preservation, combine to create a coin of the highest desirability. An opportunity that should not be missed for any advanced collector of Austrian Talers or related material. NGC EF-40.
View Coin Emperor Ferdinand I (1521-1564) Taler AUSTRIA - TO 1600 TALER 1556 HALL DAV-8027 NGC AU 50 Emperor Ferdinand I (1558-1564) Taler (72 Kreuzer). DAV 8027. Hall Mint. Scarce in such condition.
View Coin Emperor Ferdinand I (1521-1564) Taler AUSTRIA - TO 1600 TALER (1521-64) HALL DAV-8030 PCGS MS 64 ND (ca. 1574-1575). Ferdinand I (1521-64) Taler. Hall Mint. Posthumously struck coinage. DAV-8030. Obv: Crowned, armored and bearded half-length figure, (with elderly features) right, holding sword and scepter. Rev: Single headed heraldic eagle left, with shield including Austrian (stripes of Hapsburg) and Spanish (castle of Castile) arms. A rolling-dies mint was introduced in Austria during the rule of Ferdinand II (after 1564), which led previously to the wrong conclusion, that this rare type is a posthumous strike. Due to further research and numismatic discussions, the origin of the so called "Walzentaler" ("rolling-dies thaler") became more likely to be Augsburg, where the Emperor spent few more few months (January 1555 - September 1555). A nice specimen of this rare type, with raising popularity, especially after the discovery of its German-City-Mint origin!. Superb condition for this rare type. PCGS MS-64.

Bare headed draped and mantled bust right, wearing Collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece. Rev: Crowned eagle facing head left, with coat-of-arms on breast. A distinctive life-like bust defines this issue, whose thick planchet gives the coin its pleasing heft. NGC AU-55.
View Coin Emperor Ferdinand I (1558-1564) 2 Talers AUSTRIA - TO 1600 2T (1564-95) HALL DAV-8119 NGC AU 53 AUSTRIA. ND (1601-04). 2 Taler. Hall Mint. Archduke Ferdinand (1564-95) Taler. DAV-8119. M/T-308/310 (Die 1/3). Engraver: Peter Hartenbeck. "Reiherhut" type that appears in European auctions from time to time with relative scarcity. A few tiny natural planchet flaws on the archduke's portrait but fully struck. Lovely old cabinet tone displaying an attractive dove grey with a heather purple sheen and highlights amongst the devices of gold and red hues. This is generally considered to be a posthumous issue, dated 1595. Davenport notes a considerable number of talers and multiple talers struck for the archduke, DAV-8088 thru DAV-8103, all without dates. Good eye appeal and very attractive. NGC AU-53.

Very rare issue. The Eugenio de Palo Verde Collection.
View Coin Rudolph II (1576-1612) 3 Emperors Taler AUSTRIA - TO 1600 TALER 1590 HALL DAV-8105 NGC AU 58 1590. Austria. Rudolph II (1576-1612) "Three Emperors" Taler. Joachimsthal or Prague Mint. Dav-8105 (under Archduke Ferdinand as Hall mint), Voglhuber-86 (same), Markl-1953, Moser-Tursky-Unl., Donebauer-Unl., Dietiker-Unl., Halacka-Type 1. Paul Hoffman (?) as mintmaster. Among the earliest emissions from this highly sought-after series-firmly attributable to the reign of Rudolf II-this offering expresses an attractive antique appearance coupled with splendid eye appeal. While light circulation wear exists atop the highpoints, in-line with the assigned designation, a wonderful clarity of detail is expressed throughout-from the finer points of the emperors' hair and beards, down to the Orders of the Golden Fleece-with a flan that beautifully mixes age-old, dove-gray tone with shades of sky-blue. Presently the single finest certified example at NGC by 13 grade points, with none yet seen by PCGS, collectors could hardly hope for a more fitting representative of the type. NGC AU-58.

Traditionally assigned to the mint of Hall under the reign of Ferdinand as Archduke, Halacka (1987) has reassigned the issue to Rudolf II at Joachimsthal, though Prague is also a likely candidate. As Hall only produced coins from roller dies at this time, it can be ruled out with no uncertainty as the minting location.

An incredible selection from start to finish, and one that demands total attention from the viewer at every turn. The surfaces are immaculate, but even better than that, they are drenched in a dramatic mélange of color--the obverse glows with magenta iridescence that envelopes the entirety of the legend and brightens the intricate portrait of Rudolf II, while the reverse glows with turquoise centers and a golden halo at the rims. The illustrations have benefitted from a precise strike, leaving the highest points incredibly crisp. Given the coveted "star" hallmark for outstanding appeal, and rightly so, as this coin easily bests any example previously offered, and is likely among the finest survivors of the type. NGC MS-67★

Augsburg’s coinage vividly records changes in the city’s leadership during the Thirty Years’ War. This taler was minted in the name of Gustavus Adolphus, the Swedish king who occupied the predominantly Protestant city beginning in 1632. Only a few years after this coin was produced, the Habsburgs recaptured Augsburg, and the city resumed producing coins in the name of the Holy Roman Emperor.
