Transylvania 1767-HG ducat Fr-544
"Maria Theresia, 1740-1780. Dukat 1767, HG, Karlsburg. GOLD. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Austria, maria Theresia, 1740-80, ducat of 1767, Karlsburg mint, very fine to extremely fine.)"This ducat was struck for the redoubtable Maria Theresia 1765-80 and shows the veiled bust used after the death of Francis I. Unlike the Empire, where Maria Theresia had to rule thru her husband Franz (and later her son Joseph), she was queen of Hungary outright.
