If a coin is stamped with BURG-CO-TYR-17880-X , and it is a genuine and authentic Maria Theresa Thaler (MTT), it was minted in the 16th century, to honor its namesake Austrian empress. Today, these coins, which were used in Austria, Bohemia, and Hungary, are worth about €27,000.00. However, to get this sort of resale value for your rare coin, it must be an original coin, and not a restrike. There were two strikings of this particular design of coin; and one is far more valuable than the other. To determine which coin type is truly worth a lot of money, you must know that your Maria Theresa Thaler was minted during the initial 1780 Prague strike. Other types of MTT coins will generally fetch about 20 dollars in coin-trading circles, or at auction online.
