It is a Maria Theresa of Hungary, Thaler, minted after her death and up until 1985, they are still by law legal. An all look the same. Several mints have produced them, a quick search on Google will give you more information. AVSR is on all these, after her death. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_Theresa_of_Austria
