Back dated coins have normal signs of age, discoloration, or other minor imperfections may be present. If BU coins are preferred the current year Austrian Philharmonics are available.
About the Austrian Mint
The Austrian Mint (German: Münze Österreich) is located in Vienna, Austria and claims history dating back to 1194 when Duke Leopold V of Austria struck coins from silver he obtained from Richard the Lionheart. Nearly 200 years pass, however, before the Vienna Mint was first mentioned in historical documents. Originally situated near Hoher Markt, then in the Wollzeile and later in Prince Eugene’s winter palace in Himmelpfortgasse, since the first half of the 19th century the Mint has been at its magnificent home in Heumarkt, central Vienna, where coins are still struck to this day. For the proud, loyal, and long-serving staff of the Austrian Mint, minting the coins are not merely a means of earning a living, but a true passion.
Over the years, mints were established and coins struck throughout Austria in towns and cities such as Graz, Krems, Salzburg, Innsbruck and Villach. However, with the formation of the Republic of Austria in 1918, the Vienna Principal Mint became the country’s one and only mint and remains so today. In 1989 its name was officially changed to the Austrian Mint and it became a subsidiary of the Austrian Central Bank.
Today the Austrian Mint is a global player in the business of supplying means of payment. Its beautifully crafted coins minted in the very heart of Vienna are highly sought after by investors and collectors all over the world, as well as by those simply looking for a worthy and suitable gift for a loved one.
