Brunanter Thaler coins have been issued since the 15th century.

Early coinsEdit

The first thaler coins were introduced in 1537. They were issued in copper coins of 1/2, 1, 3 and 10 cents, in silver coins of 1/4, 1/2 1 and 2 Thalers and in gold coins of 5, 10 and 12.5 Thalers. This was replaced by the Second Thaler (1665), of which coins were issued in denominations of 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 cent (copper); 1, 5, 10 and 12.5 thalers (silver).

GuldenthalerEdit

The Guldenthaler replaced the second thaler in 1707 and was minted until decimalization in 1912. Coins were issued in denominations of 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 cent (copper); 1, 5, 10 and 12.5 thalers (silver).

Coins of the Fourth ThalerEdit

3 kings coins

A Johan II 10 ct. piece, a Pieter I 20 ct. piece and a Marten II 5 thaler piece

In 1913 new coin designs were introduced to replace the previous Thaler coins. The only unchanged design was that of the old 2 cent piece, which people took advantage of and used the less valuable older coins. The 5, 10, 20 and 50 cent coins were silver, as was the Thaler. In 1932 all but the 1/2 and 1 thaler pieces became copper-nickel. In 1960 the 50 ct. and 1 Thaler pieces were struck in silver for the last time as they would be made of copper-nickel after that. In 1987 the mint stopped striking 2 cent coins due to their infrequent use (compared to 1 and 5 cent pieces).

All of the coins were redesigned in 1984 and 1985 apart from the 2 thaler coin, featuring a clean modern design with a symbol or pattern above the denomination. In 2001 the last Thaler (and cent) pieces were issued and in 2002 a special commemorative proof set was released (to a total mintage of 2002 sets).
