Celebrating the nine federal provinces of Austria, each 10 euro silver coin in the Austrian Mint’s charming new series Austria by its Children reproduces the winning design from a competition in which schoolchildren were asked to draw their home province. Mintage of just 30,000 coins!
The reverse of the first coin in the series, Steiermark, was designed by ten-year-old Viktoria Reicht from Kirchbach in Steiermark (Styria) and features the forests, apples and pumpkins for which her home province, the “green heart of Austria”, is famous. Designed by chief designer Thomas Pesendorfer, the coin’s obverse shows the magical Historic Centre and Schloss Eggenberg UNESCO World Heritage Site of the provincial capital, Graz. Some of the city’s other landmarks, such as its clock tower, town hall, mausoleum dome and baroque church tower, also feature.
Minted and packed at the Austrian Mint, this beautiful coin is the fruit of the very highest production standards and comes in Special Uncirculated quality in silver and Circulation quality in copper, each with different packaging.
With a maximum mintage of 30,000 in 925 silver Proof quality only, the coin comes in a case complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity and protective slipcase.
