Featuring all eight coins, from 1 cent to 2 euro, the Official Austrian Euro Coin Set 2013 is both a lasting memory of 2013 and a fitting souvenir of Austria.
Euros from Austria!
Manufactured with maximum precision and cutting-edge technology, each coin also undergoes the most rigorous quality control to guarantee that only perfect specimens are chosen as uncirculated masterpieces. The 2 euro is the largest coin in the set and features the first woman ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, early 20th-century Austrian pacifist and novelist Bertha von Suttner. Austria’s most famous composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Born in Salzburg, is featured on the 1 euro. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will forever be remembered for his dominance of Viennese classical music during his short life. The 50 cent euro is designed with the jewel in the Viennese Modernist crown. The Secession exhibition hall still exudes modernity more than a century after it was built. The Belvedere is featured on the 20 cent euro. A masterpiece of Baroque architecture, the Belvedere was once the palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy. Today it is home to some of the world’s most famous paintings, including The Kiss by Gustav Klimt. Vienna's gothic St. Stephen's cathedral is the focus of the 10 cent euro. Construction began on St Stephen's cathedral over 800 years ago. Its roof and tower, which feature on the 10 cent coin, still dominate the Vienna skyline today. The three smallest coins in the collection are all decorated with alpine flowers: the 5 cent piece with Primula auricula, the mountain cowslip. Made world famous by the song from The Sound of Music, the edelweiss adorns the 2 cent coin. The smallest coin in circulation rounds off the 2011 coin set’s trio of alpine flowers with a gentian.
