Coins of Austrian Belgium

Recommended Posts

Two coins of Austrian held Belgium, but I don't know anything about them :ninja:

Can some clever people tell me the denominations and any other interesting information?

Great looking coppers. Is that the same Maria Theresa from the Taler?

Wow Constanius!.. I'm ashamed that my coins are so ugly - well, almost hehe.. :ninja:

 

Thanks for the info also..

 

Yours have a lot more history, even if we have no idea what it was, they have obviously been well circulated & could tell us a good story if only we had psychic abilities.

 

As for the info, you are most welcome Matt, nice to be of help, anytime.

I added a couple of these to my collection a few years ago, and was lucky to find a 1780 Liard that NGC graded as MS65BN (it truly is an amazing coin), a 1789 2 Liard that NGC graded as AU58 (nicer than it sounds with super details) and a 1790 Insurrection Liard that graded NGC MS64BN. I tried and tried and never found a better one.

 

The same design in silver and gold is WAY out of my price range, I consider myself fortunate to have found the copper version in mint condition.

 

Some day I'll post photos.

 

Here's a photo of the silver version:

Very nice examples hiho.

 

Thanks.

 

I have a 1790 Insurrection Liard that NGC graded MS64BN, some day I'll go to the bank, retrieve and photograph it. It knocked my socks off and will no doubt do the same for you.
