This coin was one of the most important trade coins in Europe, and one of the best known in the world. The Austrian Thaler and the Spanish 8 Reales formed the basis for the Silver dollar adopted by the fledgling United States under the mint Act of 1792. In fact, the word "dollar" is derived from the German/Austrian word "Thaler".
This coin ring starts off as 1 Troy ounce of fine .999 silver bullion and makes a great way to display a ring with some historical significance.
