"Wild man" thalers were issued from this locality as late as 1760. George Ludwig was promoted to king of England on the death of his cousin Anne Stuart in 1714 (note the British arms on the obverse). This is the period when the duchy ceased to be known as Brunswick-Luneburg and called Hannover instead.
