First coin: it dates 1670. The coat of arms seems to show the checkerboard as in Flag of Bavaria, but that's speculation
Second coin: it dates 1770. The inscription beginns with D.G.MAX.IOS. etc., which could mean Maximillian Iosephus from Gods grace,
however, this is again speculation.
Update: This coins most probably shows Maximillian III Joseph, Elector of Bavaria. However, I still don't know which coin it is.
Some context: these coins were found in a small box with mostly coins from the 1890's from mainly the Austria-Hungarian Empire and successor states, and the German empire and successor states. The two coins depicted above, stand out from the others as these are considerably older. As most of the coins stem from central Europe, and the find was made in Austria, I strongy suspect, that these coins might as well be from central Europe.
First one is German States MANSFELD-EISLEBEN 1/3 Thaler

History of Anti-Money Laundering Laws
Money laundering is the process of making illegally-gained proceeds (i.e. "dirty money") appear legal (i.e. "clean"). Typically, it involves three steps: placement, layering and integration. First, the illegitimate funds are furtively introduced into the legitimate financial system. Then, the money is moved around to create confusion, sometimes by wiring or transferring through numerous accounts. Finally, it is integrated into the financial system through additional transactions until the "dirty money" appears "clean." Money laundering can facilitate crimes such as drug trafficking and terrorism, and can adversely impact the global economy.
In its mission to "safeguard the financial system from the abuses of financial crime, including terrorist financing, money laundering and other illicit activity," the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network acts as the designated administrator of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). The BSA was established in 1970 and has become one of the most important tools in the fight against money laundering. Since then, numerous other laws have enhanced and amended the BSA to provide law enforcement and regulatory agencies with the most effective tools to combat money laundering. An index of anti-money laundering laws since 1970 with their respective requirements and goals are listed below in chronological order.

Why Identify and Establish Your Values?
Your values are made up of everything that has happened to you in your life and they include influences from your parents and family, your religious affiliation, your friends and peers, your education, your reading, your experiences, and more.
Effective people recognize these environmental influences and identify and develop a clear, concise, and meaningful set of values/beliefs, and priorities. Once defined, values have an impact on every aspect of your life. They form the foundation for your decision making and your relationships with other humans.
- You demonstrate and model your values in action in your personal and work behaviors, decision making, contribution, and interpersonal interaction.
- You use your values to make decisions about priorities in your daily work and home life.
- Your goals and life purpose are grounded in your values.
Choose the values that are most important to you, the values that you believe in, and that define your character. You will want to adopt them, commit to them, and then live them visibly every day of your life at work and at home.
Living your values is one of the most powerful tools available to you to help you become the person you want to be, to help you accomplish your goals and dreams, and to help you lead and influence others.
A value-based and principled person is most able to create a successful and fulfilling career and life. Don't waste your best opportunity.
What is opportunity cost?
Opportunity cost is most often used as an economic term, but it’s a useful concept for considering your weaknesses. The concept is fairly simple: given a set of limited resources, opportunity cost represents what you lose out on when you choose to spend your resources on one alternative over another.
In this case, you have a limited amount of time and money available. Let’s say you have “lack of sales ability,” and “lack of accounting ability” listed in your column of weaknesses. If you focus your time and money on developing the skills necessary to become a better salesperson, is the benefit greater to you than if you were to spend those resources on developing your accounting skills?
If you evaluate those weaknesses, and decide that improving your sales ability is more important, then what are you supposed to do about that accounting weakness? One person’s weakness is another person’s strength. It’s okay that you’re not going to be great at everything. Instead, improve what you can and bring people alongside you who have strengths that balance out your weaknesses.
Many entrepreneurs bring this up as an “aha” moment for them. Entrepreneurs tend to try and do everything by themselves, and quickly burn out. Once they were able to bring in the right people who could do some things better than them, their business was able to become more productive and effective.
I hope you’ve found these suggestions useful as you work to identify your weaknesses and strengths. Is there something else you’d add to my list? I’d love to hear about a time when you discovered a strength you didn’t know you had, or when you identified a weakness and worked to overcome it.

It Takes Just One Question to Identify Narcissism
Ohio State researchers believe they have developed and validated a new method to identify which people are narcissistic.
And, the beauty is that the tool is only a single question.
In a series of 11 experiments involving more than 2,200 people of all ages, the researchers found they could reliably identify narcissistic people by asking them this exact question (including the note):
To what extent do you agree with this statement: &ldquoI am a narcissist.&rdquo (Note: The word &ldquonarcissist&rdquo means egotistical, self-focused, and vain.)
Participants rated themselves on a scale of one (not very true of me) to seven (very true of me).
If you are curious about the test or want to know how narcissistic are you? The test is found at http://tinyurl.com/ovsf54v.
Results showed that people&rsquos answer to this question lined up very closely with several other validated measures of narcissism, including the widely used Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI).
The difference is that this new survey &mdash which the researchers call the Single Item Narcissism Scale (SINS) &mdash has one question, while the NPI has 40 questions to answer.
&ldquoPeople who are willing to admit they are more narcissistic than others probably actually are more narcissistic,&rdquo said Brad Bushman, co-author of the study and a professor of communication and psychology at Ohio State University.
&ldquoPeople who are narcissists are almost proud of the fact. You can ask them directly because they don&rsquot see narcissism as a negative quality &mdash they believe they are superior to other people and are fine with saying that publicly.&rdquo
Bushman conducted the study with Sara Konrath of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy (formerly of the University of Michigan) and Brian Meier of Gettysburg College.
The study has been published in the journal PLOS ONE.
&ldquoUnderstanding narcissism has many implications for society that extend beyond the impact on the individual narcissist&rsquos life,&rdquo Konrath said.
&ldquoFor example, narcissistic people have low empathy, and empathy is one key motivator of philanthropic behavior such as donating money or time to organizations.&rdquo
&ldquoOverall, narcissism is problematic for both individuals and society. Those who think they are already great don&rsquot try to improve themselves,&rdquo Bushman said.
&ldquoAnd narcissism is bad for society because people who are only thinking of themselves and their own interests are less helpful to others.&rdquo
Bushman emphasized that the one question tool (SINS) shouldn&rsquot be seen a replacement for the longer narcissism questionnaires (NPI, etc) as other instruments can provide more information to researchers, such as which form of narcissism someone has.
&ldquoBut our single-item scale can be useful for long surveys in which researchers are concerned about people getting fatigued or distracted while answering questions and possibly even dropping out before they are done,&rdquo Bushman said.
He noted that if it takes a person 20 seconds to answer the single question in the SINS measure, it would take him or her 13.3 minutes to answer the 40-question NPI.
&ldquoThat is a big difference if you&rsquore doing a study in which participants have to complete several different survey instruments and answer a long list of other questions,&rdquo he said.
The 11 different experiments took a number of different approaches to determine the validity of SINS. Some used undergraduate college students, while others involved online panels of American adults.
One experiment found that SINS was positively related to each of the seven subscales of the NPI which measure various components of narcissism (vanity, exhibitionism, exploitativeness, authority, superiority, self-sufficiency, and entitlement).
Another study found that that participants tended to have similar scores on SINS when tested 11 days apart.
One experiment replicated past work that showed people scoring high in narcissism were more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors and had difficulty maintaining long-term committed romantic relationships.
&ldquoPeople who scored higher on narcissism on the SINS had both positive and negative outcomes,&rdquo Bushman said. They reported more positive feelings, more extraversion, and marginally less depression.
But they also reported less agreeableness, and more anger, shame, guilt, and fear. In addition, people scoring high on SINS showed negative interpersonal outcomes, such as having poor relationships with others and less prosocial behavior when their ego was threatened.
&ldquoThe advantage of SINS compared to other measures,&rdquo Bushman said, &ldquois that it allows researchers to identify narcissists very easily.&rdquo
&ldquoWe don&rsquot think SINS is a replacement for other narcissism inventories in all situations, but it has a time and place,&rdquo he said.
