It would be trademarked not as a monetary term but as financial software, and that's where the hypothetical conflict could occur.

Your etymology is not quite right - T(h)aler is actually an abbreviation of "Joachimsthaler" - ie from the town of Joachimsthal which was, in the 16th century when the name originated, in Bohemia. It's now Jáchymov in the Czech Republic.
