THE 825TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE VIENNA MINT. The year 2019 gives the opportunity to look back over the history of Vienna Mint, which goes back to 1194 when King Richard the Lion-heart of England, imprisoned in the castle of Durnstein in 1192 at the behest of Duke Leopold V of Austria, was released upon the payment of a large ransom in silver. Leopold used this to make silver coins, which led to the founding of the original Vienna Mint.
