The Thaler was a coin issued by Baden at various times. Before 1821, Baden issued Kronenthaler and Conventionsthaler.

In 1829, a new Thaler was introduced, subdivided into 100 Kreuzer. It replaced the Gulden (worth 60 Kreuzer) as the chief unit of account. A silver Thaler coin was issued, containing 5/147 of a Cologne mark of silver, together with a gold 5 Thaler coin.

In 1837, the Gulden replaced the Thaler at a rate of 1 Gulden = 0.6 Thaler. Between 1857 and 1871, Baden issued Vereinsthaler alongside the Gulden.
