Description of coin Albertosaur 1753:

In the middle of the XVIII century in the North of Germany in the Duchy of Holstein (near the modern border with Denmark) was ruled by the representatives of the house of Oldenburg - Holstein-Gottorp. One of the Dukes was Karl Peter Ulrich, the future Emperor of Russia, who took afterwards the name of Peter III. Carl Ulrich was the grandson of Peter I, therefore, had a right to the throne. After 180 days of the reign he overthrew his own wife, who had Prussian ancestry. In 1753, by order of the local merchant a limited edition released a Thaler with a portrait of Peter III, which is similar to the local coins were called albertosaurus (coin of this denomination traces its history back to albert's Austrian).
