Comments

"Jubilee coins" in gold and silver were issued in honour of the Emperor on April 28, 1766. The Regensburg Mint master, Johann Christoph Busch, had recently died, so the Jubilee coins were minted in Nuremberg with Mint master Johann Leonhard Oexlein. The dies are cut without specifying the value, since both multiple ducats and silver coins had already been minted. According to the mint documents, 604 thalers were produced; the number of gold coins is not specified.
