The history of Austrian 100 gram Gold bars
Austrian Mint 100 gram Gold bars share in the history of Gold as a valuable commodity, treasured by people for thousands of years. Before Gold was used to produce Gold bars, the Precious Metal was used to create decorative objects, and the first record of this use dates back to 4000 B.C. in the region that is today known as Eastern Europe. Like these Gold bars for sale, Gold was eventually used to trade, and the first purely Gold “minted” coins were produced in Lydia in Asia Minor around 50 B.C. Buy Gold bars, and possess physical Gold like the generations of people before you who also valued the Precious Metal for its beauty, rarity and trading potential.
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800 years of minting history in Vienna, though it would be another 200 years before the Vienna Mint was mentioned in historical documents.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.
