Ideal as a gift, a lasting memento or a fitting souvenir of Austria, this complete euro coin set comprises each of the euro and cent coins in circulation. 2 Euro The first woman ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, early 20th-century Austrian pacifist and novelist Bertha von Suttner features on the largest coin. 1 Euro Born in Salzburg, Austria’s most famous composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, will forever be remembered for his dominance of Viennese classical music during his short life. 50 Cent The jewel in the Viennese Modernist crown, the Secession exhibition hall still exudes modernity more than a century after it was built. 20 Cent A masterpiece of Baroque architecture, the Belvedere was once the palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy. Today it is home to some of the world’s most famous paintings, including The Kiss by Gustav Klimt. 10 Cent Construction began on Vienna’s gothic St Stephen's cathedral over 800 years ago. Its roof and tower, which feature on the 10 cent coin, still dominate the Vienna skyline today. 5 Cent The three smallest coins in the collection are all decorated with alpine flowers. The 5 cent piece with primula auricula, the mountain cowslip. 2 Cent Made world famous by the song from the musical The Sound of Music, the edelweiss adorns the 2 cent coin. 1 Cent The smallest coin in circulation rounds of the 2017 coin set’s trio of alpine flower with a gentian. AUSTRIA The Electric Railway „Austrian Railways“ One side of the new coin features an image of an electric locomotive, series 1189 – also known as “Crocodile”. It was used for traffic on the Arlberg Railway – a part of which can be seen in the background. The other side of this 20 € silver coin shows an image of Castle Wiesberg and the Trisanna Bridge being crossed by a locomotive, series 1100 along with a passenger train. With the current issue „The Electric Railway“ the Austrian Mint continues this fascinating series of silver coins. The series will be completed on September 9 with the release of the coin „The Railway of the Future“. Austrian euro coins have a unique design for each denomination, with a common theme for each of the three series of coins. The minor coins feature Austrian flowers, the middle coins examples of architecture from Austria's capital, Vienna, and the two major coins famous Austrians. All designs are by the hand of Josef Kaiser and also include the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint. Future changes to the national side of circulation coins "The national sides of all denominations of the euro circulation coins should bear an indication of the issuing Member State by means of the Member State’s name or an abbreviation of it. "The national side should not repeat any indication on the denomination, or any parts thereof, of the coin neither should it repeat the name of the single currency or of its subdivision, unless such indication stems from the use of a different alphabet. "This Recommendation should apply to national sides and edge letterings of both normal and commemorative euro circulation coins. It should not apply to the national sides and edge letterings of both normal and commemorative euro circulation coins which have been first issued prior to the adoption of this Recommendation." The above paragraphs, in essence, requires 6 of the 16 Eurozone members to change their national designs. Finland was the first state when they changed its design in 2007, Belgium announced its change for 2008 while Austria is still pending. Austrian euro coins (all denominations) show a tiny Austrian flag on the country-specific side. On smaller denominations (1, 2 and 5 cents) the flag is curved upwards so as to fit in the scarce space. Once more, colours are represented by hatching (three horizontal stripes hatched vertical-plain-vertical standing for red-white-red). 2004 Austria Euro 5 Silver BU Coin "EU Enlargement" This coin has been issued by the Austrian government to celebrate the May 1 enlargement of the European Union with 10 new countries. After successfully growing from 6 to 15 members, the European Union is now preparing for its biggest enlargement ever in terms of scope and diversity. 13 countries have applied to become new members: 10 of these countries - Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, the Slovak Republic, and Slovenia are set to join on 1st May 2004. Bulgaria and Romania hope to do so by 2007, while Turkey is not currently negotiating its membership. In order to join the Union, they need to fulfill the economic and political conditions known as the 'Copenhagen criteria', according to which a prospective member must be a stable democracy, respecting human rights, the rule of law, and the protection of minorities; have a functioning market economy; and adopt the common rules, standards and policies that make up the body of EU law. The coin’s reverse features a map of Europe with the location of the ten new countries marked by flags, and their official names in the native language toward the bottom. The legend to the left says “EU Erweiterung 2004” and to the right of the legend is the new hallmark for Euro issues – a Euro sign inside a star - this year featured on coins from Austria, Holland, France, Belgium, Spain and Portugal (more countries will adopt the hallmark in 2005). The obverse shows the shields of the 9 Austrian provinces – corresponding also to the edges of the coin itself – as well as the legend “Republik Osterreich”, the denomination in the middle, and
“Euro” at the bottom. The coin has been struck by the Austrian Mint in 80% silver, and measures 28.50 mm in diameter and weighs 8 grams. The issue limit is 100,000 coins of the brilliant uncirculated version, and it comes delivered mounted in a colorful and informative folder. Austrian mint A mint has existed in Vienna since 1194 AD.

After WWII, Austria was divided into four zones occupied by the victorious allies: British, French, American and Soviet. Vienna was divided into four zones also. The Inner City was ruled jointly ("Four in a Jeep" as featured on a silver coin in 2003). After long negotiations the four occupation powers agreed to evacuate their troops in 1955. A State Treaty was signed in the Belvedere Palace on May 15th between the four powers and Austria. The Austrian Foreign Minister, Leopold Figl, proudly proclaimed that "Austria is free!" The State Treaty restored full sovereignty. Austria was declared to be a sovereign, independent and democratic state pledged to perpetual neutrality. This coin is also available individually in uncirculated quality, fresh from the coin roll. Silver commemorative coin series: The new coin, Nonnberg, is the first in a 6 coin series titled “Abbeys and Monasteries” and is a subset of the well-known and long running series of "Austria and Her People." Two coins of this series (or subset) will be issued in 2006, 2007 and 2008. In modern times the Abbey of Nonnberg is probably best known because it was featured in the classic film, ”The Sound of Music.”
