The history of Gold Coronas

Gold Coronas became Austria’s first Gold currency, during the currency reform of 1892. Gold coins in 10 and 20 crown (or Corona) denominations were first issued, replacing the gulden. The Austrian Mint’s larger 100 crown coins, or Gold 100 coronas, were issued in 1908, during Emperor Franz Joseph’s diamond jubilee. When you buy Gold bullion like the Gold 100 Corona modern re-strikes, you are paying tribute to the rich history of this Gold coin, which stopped being produced as currency in 1915.

Why invest in Gold Coronas?

Gold Coronas are a good way to add to your Gold holdings, as the Gold coins have a low premium over spot price of Gold, especially when compared with some other Gold coins. When you buy these Gold coins, you get a quality investment that is more attractive than a simple Gold bar. These Gold bullion 100 Coronas have almost 1 troy ounce of Gold. Gold coins from the Austrian Mint and other world mints are an important part of your Gold holdings as Gold bullion offers a high degree of flexibility and usability.

Buying Gold coins like Gold Coronas can be a good investment strategy.

Gold coins with a high numismatic or collector value are coins that are sought out by collectors and valued for their history, rarity or unique design. An investor’s focus is trained on Gold bullion with high raw Gold value and low numismatic value. Gold Coronas from the Austrian Mint are ideal investments as many are re-strikes. As a result, the Gold coins are not rare and, therefore, have a low numismatic value and are not considerably more than the Gold spot price. Investors like to add Gold Coronas to their Gold holdings because Coronas are a sovereign coin backed by the Austrian Mint, which means that even though the Gold coins have aesthetic value, the coins have low premium prices. And while premiums are typically lower, the history is still rich. As one of the most popular bullion choices in the 1970s, and original mintage dates back to as early as 1908.

Just a correction on your description of the Austrian Coronas and the gentlemen on the coin. In the Coin Highlights: Observe: Franz Josef I was Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary, not the other way around!

I got a couple of these to check them out. I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. They are very nice coins, and were a great deal for almost an oz of gold. I will order them again.

beautiful coin with low premium

By  georgewny

from NY

5.0

if you are looking to add gold, the Austria 100 Coronas offers a very low premium over spot and gets you something far more gorgeous than a gold bar. Re-strike will probably inhibit much of it's numismatic value, but in return you have nearly 1 troy oz of gold which is much nicer to view/show than a bar. Add to that APMEX superior service makes it a very enjoyable a easy process to purchase.

Nice Chunky Coin

By  Hawaiian I

from Kaneohe, HI

4.0

Bought this nice, chunky coin for its historic design and its relatively low premium over spot. Not as nice as its Hungarian counterpart, but still an interesting design. In retrospect, I should have paid a few dollars more for the Hungarian 100 Korona restrikes. Good customer service by APMEX.

Pros
