The history of 2 gram Gold bars
Austrian Mint Gold bars and other Gold bullion have fascinated people for thousands of years, so it is no surprise that a legendary city of Gold, El Dorado, would entice explorers the way it did. Visible in this 2 gram Gold bar, the beauty of Gold and the promise of untold riches lured European explorers to South America for two centuries. Unlike how Gold bars are valued today, it was thought that the native peoples of South America were ignorant of Gold’s true value, and this likely became the inspiration for a city or a great store of Gold that would be free for the taking. Even though the city is a myth, most people who buy Gold bars and understand its value will likely have the same dream of someday stumbling upon this imaginary city of Gold.
In 1194, Richard the Lionheart paid 12 tons of Silver to Duke Leopold V of Austria to secure his freedom from a year of incarceration. This act unintentionally laid the foundation for the Austrian Mint, as Duke Leopold had coins struck from Richard the Lionheart’s ransom. In doing so, Leopold set in motion more than 800 years of minting history in Vienna, though it would be another 200 years before the Vienna Mint was mentioned in historical documents.
The Vienna Mint was originally situated near Hoher Merkt and later at various locations in Vienna. Since the first half of the 19th century, the mint has been housed in Heumarkt in central Vienna, where coins are still struck to this day. Minting facilities opened throughout Austria until 1918 when the Republic of Austria was formed and the Vienna Principal Mint became the singular minting facility. In 1989, the name officially changed to the Austrian Mint and became a subsidiary of the Austrian National Bank.
One of the Austrian Mint’s most recognized coins is the Maria Teresa Thaler, which is not simply a famous Silver coin, but one that boasts the greatest number minted. Another prime example of the mint’s international success is the Gold Philharmonic, one of the most popular Gold bullion coins worldwide. The Gold Philharmonic has played a vital role in developing the Austrian Mint into a highly successful company. The Austrian Mint’s beautifully crafted coins are minted in the heart of Vienna and are sought after by investors and collectors around the world.
