Austria 1/2 and 1 Kreutzer 1749 to 1790
Pictures of these old beauties are not easy to find, so CoinQuest thanks Coin House SESAM Basel in Riehen, Switzerland for use of their coin image.
Maria Theresa ruled Austria from 1740 to 1780, and her image appears on many coins from this era. She ruled with King Franz from 1745 to 1765, and sometimes his picture shows up as well. This page applies to 1/2 and 1 kreutzers with either Maria or Franz on the front of the coin with dates in the range 1749 to 1790. See this page for coins with Franz.
