NEWTHE BEAUTIFUL AND FAMOUS MARIA THERESA THALER  

Maria Theresa Thaler 1780 RestrikeMany consider the Maria Theresa Thaler to be one of the most beautiful coins in the world. It is certainly one of the most popular. This silver coin is larger than a United States silver dollar. The veiled "fat lady" on the coin was considered the epitome of beauty in much of the Middle East, so for many years it was the standard trade coin in the region. Since troops and traders from many nations needed the coins to operate in the middle east it has been restruck in mints throughout the world, including Prague, Milan, London, Paris, Brussels, Kremintz, Rome, Bombay and Florence. It is still being struck today in Vienna. Despite where and when it was struck, it is always dated 1780, the year Maria Theresa died. The 41mm coin is struck in .833 fine silver and contains slightly over 3/4 of a troy ounce of silver. Maria, as Empress of the Holy Roman Empire was noted both for her diplomatic skills and for giving birth to 16 children, thus making her a direct ancestor of most of the royal houses of Europe.

Austria silver 25 Schilling 1967 commemorating 250th anniversary of the birth of Maria TheresaAustria issued this silver 25 Schilling in 1967 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Empress Maria Thersa.  She assumed the throne of the Hapsburg domains in 1740 at age 23 and was immediately thrust into the War of Austrian Succession when other European powers did not approve of a women taking the throne in her own right.  Though she was expected to cede power to her husband Francis I and son Joseph II, who were officially co-rulers, she never did, keeping power herself. She was a wise and strong ruler that greatly strengthened the military engaged in major reforms. She was the sovereign of Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Bohemia, Transylvania, Mantua, Milan, Galicia and Lodomeria, the Austrian Netherlands, Parma, Duchess of Lorraine, Grand Duchess of Tuscany, and Holy Roman Empress.  Quite a collection of titles!   She gave birth to 16 children in the 19 years between 1737 and 1756, 10 of which survived into adulthood.

CANADA 1964 CHARLOTTETOWN SILVER DOLLAR 

Canada 1964 silver dollar commemorating 100th anniversary of Charlottetown and Qubec conferencesCanada young head silver dollarCanada issued a circulating commemorative silver dollar in 1964 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences.  The conferences laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Dominion of Canada in 1867. The Charlottetown Conference was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in September 1864. Initially the conference was to discuss a union of the Maritime colonies, but was expanded to include the Province of Canada as well.  Britain encouraged the union, hoping the colonies would become less dependent on the Crown and provide for greater economic and military power for the region in light of the American Civil War.   A circus came to Charlottetown the same week, the first one to visit in over 20 years. Folks were much more interested in the circus than politics.  Workers left their jobs and folks from all over the island came into town which made accommodations difficult for the delegates.  A second conference was held in Quebec the following month.  The Quebec Conference created 72 Resolutions which laid the foundation for unifying the colonies.  The resolutions covered a wide range of issues, from governmental powers to building railroads.   The coin depicts young Queen Elizabeth on the obverse.  The reverse features an emblem incorporating the French fleur-de-lis, the Irish shamrock, the Scottish thistle, and the English rose representing the main nationalities that settled Canada.   Around it is the legend "CHARLOTTETOWN • QUEBEC", the dates "1864" and "1964".  The 36mm coin is struck in .800 fine silver and contains .6  troy ounces of silver.

In 1912 Luitpold died and his son succeeded him as regent.

East India Company - Bengal Presidency 1 Rupee AH1229 (1813AD)This amazing Uncirculated silver rupee was one of the last hammer struck coin by the Bengal Presidency of the British East India Company.  Though struck by the British East India Company, the coin was struck in the name of Mughal Emperor Shah Alam II.  The coin is dated both AH1229, which corresponds to 1813AD, and Year 49 of the reign of Shah Alam II, which corresponds to 1806. Though Shah Alam II died in 1806, the coin continued to be struck from 1813 to 1819, always bearing the same dates.  The British East India Company continued to strike coins in his name as he was well respected and coins in his name were widely accepted and trusted.  By the time the coin was struck the British East India Company's Bengal Presidency controlled most of north-east India and the Mughal Emperor was little more than a figurehead.  The coin was struck at the Banaras (now called Varanasi) Mint.

SERBIA HONORS TESLA ON SILVER COINS

Nikola Tesla is depicted on the obverse of Serbia 1 troy ounce silver Tesla 100 Dinara coinsSERBIA 100 DINARA 1 TROY OUNCE 2020 SILVER TESLA - X-RAYS 1 troy ounce silver Tesla 100 Dinara coinsSERBIA 100 DINARA 1 TROY OUNCE 2023 SILVER TESLA - THE SECRET OF THE UNIVERSESERBIA 100 DINARA 1 TROY OUNCE 2023 SILVER TESLA - ANTI-GRAVITY AIRCRAFTSERBIA 100 DINARA 1 TROY OUNCE 2023 SILVER TESLA - TELSA COILSERBIA 100 DINARA 1 TROY OUNCE 2024 TELEFORCE DIRECT ENERGY WEAPON
Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, physicist, and futurist.  He is said to have over 300 patents covering a wide range of technologies including alternating current, electric motors, remote control, television, radio, x-rays, cell phones, robotics, lasers, turbine engines, magnetic propulsion, drones, solar power, weather manipulation, particle beams and electromagnetic energy (the Tesla coil). He was a brilliant inventor, but a poor businessman.  Despite his many important and revolutionary inventions, he died alone and penniless in New York in 1943.
   Serbia instituted an annual series of silver 100 Dinara coins honoring Tesla and his many inventions.  The 40.25mm coins each contain 1 troy ounce of .999 silver  and are struck by the Serbian Mint.  The Serbian arms, weight, purity, silver content, date, denomination and one or more of his inventions are on the reverses.  
    The 2020 coin honored Tesla's early work with X-rays.  Nikola Tesla was one of the early discoverers of X-rays.  His first X-ray images, which he called shadowgraphs, were done in 1894, a year before Wilhelm Rontgen published his discovery of X-rays in 1895. He was one of the first to recognize some of the benefits of X-rays, such as the finding of foreign objects within a body and the detection of lung diseases.  He was also one of the first to recognize the hazards of X-ray radiation. Unfortunately, most of his work was lost when his laboratory burned down in 1895.  The coin has a mintage of 19,812 in BU.
     The first 2023 issue features what Tesla considered "The Secret of the Universe".  Tesla believed the everything in the universe could be understood through the Energy, Vibration and Frequency of waves.  Understanding waves not only explains natural phenomena, but also our interaction and perception of the physical world and our well-being, harmony and life as well.  We interact with the reality through our eyes and ears which convert electromagnetic (light) and mechanical (sound) waves into electric neural signals; which are then interpreted by our brain through the firing of neurons, which produce and respond to electrical impulses.  Tesla believed physics and dimension are best understood by the mathematics of threes.  One of his famous quotes: "If you only know the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe".  He believed these numbers held great significance in the universe, nature and understanding humans.  It has a mintage of 9711 in BU.
   The second 2023 issue depicts Tesla's "Aether into space drive", also called his anti-gravity flying car.  The design is based on his patent application for an anti-gravity flying car.  Much of Tesla's later work, including his theories on transmitting large amounts of energy through space, was based on his theories about Aether.  Aether was an invisible substance which filled space, rather than space being a vacuum.  His theories about Aether have been disproven and the Anti gravity flying car was never built.   The coin has a mintage of 8258 in BU.
   The third and final issue features the famed Tesla Coil. .  The Tesla Coil, invented in 1891, produces high-voltage, low-current, high-frequency alternating-current electricity.  Until the 1920’s it was used for wireless telegraphy and in medical devices.   Now days it is used for educational displays, entertainment, special effects and novelty lighting for the large, impressive sparks it generates.   It has a mintage of 7860 in BU.  
   The first 2024 issue features Tesla's Direct Energy Weapon, which was also known as Teleforce or the Death Beam.  He claimed it would destroy anything approaching within 200 miles, and would provide a wall of power making any country, large or small, impregnable against armies, airplanes, and other means for attack. He never successfully demonstrated it in public and his attempts to sell it to the League of Nations, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Canada and Yugoslavia all failed.
