Product Details

Lauriacum is the penultimate coin in the six-coin Rome on the Danube series. This marvellous 20 euro silver coin celebrates both historical moments in the wonderfully intricate fashion typical of this splendid series. Mintage of just 50,000 coins (ASW 0.5209 oz)!
Superbly struck in Proof quality with a maximum mintage of 50,000 pieces, each coin comes in a protective transparent acrylic capsule and a presentation box containing a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Christian Emperor Gratianus, who visited Lauriacum in AD 378, is depicted in profile on the coin’s obverse. Behind him stands St Florian, the patron saint of Austrian firefighters, holding a flag, a millstone and a palm of martyrdom. A Roman military commander, Florian refused to renounce his Christianity during Christian purges in AD 304 and paid the ultimate price when he was drowned in the River Enns at Lauriacum, which can be seen in the background of the coin’s reverse. In the foreground, a Roman ‘agrimensor’, or surveyor, involved in the construction of a bridge takes measurements with the help of a ‘groma’, while his plans and other geometrical tools lie on a table at his side.

For those keen to complete the whole six-coin collection a superb wooden case is also available for purchase.
