2012 Silver Austrian 10 Euro Carinthia-Kärnten Proof

2012 Silver Austrian 10 Euro Carinthia-Kärnten Proof

Product Details

A land of lakes, mountains and summer sunshine, the province of Carinthia is featured in all its beauty on the delightful second 10 euro silver coin in the 'Austria by its Children' series. With a maximum mintage of 30,000 in .925 fine silver (ASW 0.47588 oz) Proof quality only, the coin comes in a case complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity and protective slipcase.

Depicting the nine provinces of Austria sharing a border with Slovenia in the south of the country, Carinthia is home to numerous bilingual schools, which is why ten-year-old Philip Ogris chose to place the name of his home province in both German and Slovenian at the bottom of his competition-winning design on the coin’s reverse. Ibexes, the legendary Lindwurm of Klagenfurt and the crystal-clear waters of Lake Wörthersee also make an appearance, while the coin’s obverse depicts an example of Carinthia’s intangible cultural heritage, as recognised by UNESCO, in the shape of falconry. The superb design by Austrian Mint award-winning designer Thomas Pesendorfer depicts this ancient art being practiced in the grounds of medieval Landskron Castle near Villach, Carinthia’s second largest city.
