The 1 kreuzer coin was issued by Tyrolean insurrectionist forces under Andreas Hofer in 1809, during a period of occupation by the Kingdom of Bavaria from 1805 to 1814. It had a value equal to 1⁄60 of a gulden. The coin was accompanied by a similar piece denominated at 20 kreuzer.
The coin is composed of copper, measures approximately 24 millimeters in diameter, and weighs 4.83 grams. The eagle from the Tyrolean coat of arms is featured on the obverse, accompanied by a legend reading "GEFÜRSTETE GRAFTSCHAFT TIROL", which translates from German to English as "Princely County of Tyrol". The coin's value (inscribed as "EIN KREUZER") and year of minting are displayed on the reverse, partially encircled by two connected laurel branches. A floral pattern is engraved along the edge.
