c.1840/1?


 
 
USA: 



Apparently, Fr. 1 = $ 0.186896 ; Gold $20.6705/Ozt




USA, c.1840/1 (1842) 

Citation: A Manual of Gold and Silver Coins of All Nations, Struck Within the Past ... Jacob Reese Eckfeldt (1842)

 

 

In Fine Gold, 1 Ozt was generally valued Fl. 40.92 (+/- Premium)



The Prussian Double Friedrich d'or was current at Thlr. 11.33, so 
the Friedrich d'or @Thlr. 5.6667 (obvious discrepancy noted), value 
= $ 3.964, ∴ (Au) Thlr 1. = $ 0.7928

 (Ag) Thlr 1. = $ 0.6830


Specie shipping cost London-New York = 1%







Germany:


Bavaria, c. 1840/1:


 
Würzburg:

Coin Par (S.German Florins) appears inconsistent here, perhaps due to Coin Weights?  The Silver Rouble was worth -4.48% less than the Gold Rouble, but the Platinum Rouble was -48.22% less than the Gold Rouble.

1 руб (Pt) = Fl. 1.0208 ; 1 руб (Ag) = Fl. 1.8833 ; 1 руб (Au) = Fl. 1.9717

£ 1.0 (Ag) =     Fl. 12. ;             £ 1.0 (Au) = Fl. 12.05
Fr. 20. (Ag) = Fl. 9.4333 ; Fr. 20. (Au) = Fl.   9.5646
5   руб (Ag)  = Fl. 9.4167  ; 5   руб (Au)  = Fl. 9.8500
$ 10. (Ag)  = Fl. 25.1667  ; $10. (Au)  = Fl. 24.7417

Assuming both the Platinum Rouble and US Dollar (Ag) Values correct for 1840, the intrinsic value of Platinum money was greatly debased from the official Russian rate.

c. 1840: 1 Ozt. Platinum (Coin, Intrinsic) ~ Fl. 9.2007 ($ 3.656)

 








Russia:

c. 1840:  1 руб Pt (Silver Rate) = £ 0.1542 ; 
c. 1840:  1 руб Pt (Silver Rate) = 3.50 руб Acc.  

Troy Oz. Platinum (SPb: semi-mfg)= 21.87664 руб Acc.  
~  руб (Ag), = £ 1., Fr. , ℳ ,

1839/40:

£ 1. = руб Ag 6. ;  руб 1. Ag = £ 0.1667
£ 1. = руб Acc. 20.87 - 21.82 ;  руб 1. Acc. = £ 0.0458 - 0.0479
£ 1. = руб Acc. 21.25


c.1839/40: руб 1. Acc. = £ 0.0458



c. 1844:

 


The Imperiale of 1801 = 73.475388 Grains Fine Au; 0.15307372 Ozt .999 Au; 4.76112483 Grams Pure Gold. 

Russian, 1840:


In 1848, Noback's study closely approximated Hamilton's to establish the Spanish Dollar was 24.44 Grams  (377.167 Grains) Fine Ag: 90.244% Fine.

Where the Russian Mint evaluated the full-weight of the Spanish Dollar  (414.87 Grains Troy; 0.8643 Ozt; 26.883 Grams) the Dollar was just 23.7565 Grams (366.62 Grains; 0.7638 Ozt) Fine Ag, a loss of -2.80% Fine Silver.  This can only be reconciled if the "Spanish" coins assayed had been significantly underweight, and the "standard weight" a best example.
  

In Russia, Spanish Dollars circulating ~22-60 Years later were presumed -2.80% light.

Circa Fall 1840?

3) Platinum coins (Platuinnja Denji), pieces of 12 and 6 Roubles, without special surnames, only rarely occurring.

Finally, in the south, the following are frequently found: 
1) Thaler (Dollar), i.e. Spanish Piastre= руб 1.50 (Ag) or 6 руб Acc. (according to other data = руб 1.31 (Ag) or 4.80 руб Acc.







Netherlands:
Where the Netherland Fl. 10 Au = 6.7294g. /6.0393 g. * 0.900,

1 Kg. Netherlands Fl. 10 (148.611 Coins) = Ned. Fl. (Au) 1,486.11
1 Kg. Netherlands Fl. 10 @ .999 Au (165.11 Coins) = Ned. Fl. (Au) 1,651.14
