"Taler 1545. Regensburg Mit Titel Karls V. Gutes sehr schön (bishopric of Regensburg, thaler of 1545, in the name of Charles V, good very fine.)"
Coins were issued for Regensburg both by the city council and the bishop (shown here). The bishop issued this type in 1540 and 1543-47. It is expensive but the other episcopal thalers for the sixteenth century are much rarer. Today, Regensburg is part of Bavaria.
