Coins of Austria

Austria
Europe

Austria chose to produce a series of coins illustrating flowers, architecture and famous people from its history. The designs were chosen by a national panel and public opinion poll. Austrian artist Josef Kaiser created the designs.

2 coin bears a portrait of the pacifist Bertha von Suttner, a symbol of Austria's efforts over many decades to support peace. Edge lettering of the 2 coin: 2 EURO ***, repeated four times, alternately upright and inverted.

Depicted on 1 coin is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the famous Austrian composer, in reference to Austria as a land of music.

50-cent coin shows the secession building in Vienna, illustrating the birth of art nouveau in Austria. The building symbolises the birth of a new age and represents a bridge to a new monetary era.
