This coin is a coronation thaler struck to celebrate the coronation of King William and Queen Augusta.
On 2 January 1861, Frederick William died and William ascended the throne as William I of Prussia. In July a student from Leipzig attempted to assassinate William, but he was only lightly injured. William and Augusta’s coronation was a magnificent ceremony at the church in Königsberg Castle. Wilhelm crowned himself and then crowned his queen. William chose the anniversary of the Battle of Leipzig, 18 October, for this event, which was the first Prussian crowning ceremony since 1701 and the only crowning of a German king in the 19th century.

Gott mit uns ("God with us") is a phrase commonly used on armour in the German military from the German Empire to the end of the Third Reich, although its historical origins are far older. It was used for the first time in German by the Teutonic Order.
