You have found a bag of thalers. When you have enough thalers you can open chests containing valuable items.

Hint tool tip.

Thalers (pronounced "tah-lurs")[1] are items cut from the release of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. They were shown in the BETA gameplay video (found in the Super Secret file), and available for implementation in Custom Stories.


The pouches, bags, and sacks contain various amounts of Thalers, ranging from 10 to 50. They would have been found in various locations, as well as inside crates when broken open.

When picking up a bag of Thalers, the hint states that a numerical amount of Thalers could be used to open certain chests containing valuable items. They would also have been used to refill the Lantern at Oil Barrels.

In the file that the game saves normally for saved games, in notepad format, has a value for the amount of coins the player has under the line:

<class type="cLuxPlayer_SaveData" name="mPlayer"".
<var type="2" name="mlCoins" val="_" />

There is also a coin icon might have an inventory item for the Thalers. There are three of these icons in the game files:

  • coins_large
  • coins_medium
  • coins_small

Although they are three different images, they all look exactly the same. This makes a lot of sense since the Thalers came in three bags: one small, one medium, and one large, each containing a different amount of coins.


  • The Thaler was a silver coin minted by various sovereignties, namely the Holy Roman Empire as well as various successor, predecessor, and constituent German states (including at one point the Kingdom of Prussia, where Brennenburg is located), and was used throughout Europe since the mid-15th century CE till the 19th.[1]
    • It is from this, through the Low German and/or Dutch word "daler," that the English word "dollar" likely comes.[1]
