Austria 1751-HA thaler Dav-1155
"RDR/ÖSTERREICH Franz I. 1745-1765. Konventionstaler 1751, Hall. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Austria, Francis I, 1745-65, convention thaler of 1751, Hall mint. Very fine to extremely fine.)"On the death of Charles VI in 1740, the redoubtable Maria Theresia was crowned Archduchess of Austria and queen of Hungary but, being a woman, could not be given the imperial crown. Therefore, after much debate and a war fomented by Frederick the Great of Prussia, her husband Francis of Lorraine was crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 1745. This thaler was issued 1751-65 from the Hall mint and is common.
