The Italian equivalent of the Thaler (q.v.). The name is, however, generally applied to coins of the eighteenth century and later, to distinguish them from the Scudo. Exceptions to this rule are the Talleri of Francesco Ferrero of Messerano (1588-1624), and those of Mantua, Florence, etc., as well as the Tallero of the Italian colony of Eritrea.

The Doges of Venice, from the middle of the eighteenth century to the end of the Republic, issued a series of Talleri for the Levant.
