Question
HI AM SIPHAMANDLA NICOLAS MHLANGA FROM ERMELO IN SOUTH AFRICA..I WANT TO KNOW THAT IF YOU HAVE A MARIA THERESA THALER SILVER COIN 1780 WHAT CAN I DO? BECAUSE I HAVE THIS COIN AND I WANT TO SELL IT TO YOU WHAT CAN I DO?

Answer
There were many, many, many of these thalers minted for years and years with that date, as well as a lot of counterfeits.  Even if real, it's value will basically only be for the silver it contains -- maybe a couple dollars more.  I suggest you find a local jeweler who can test the silver, and perhaps sell it to them.

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
