Celebrating the nine federal provinces of Austria, each 10 euro silver coin in the Austrian Mint’s new series 'Austria by its Children' reproduces the winning design from a competition in which school children were asked to draw their home province. Mintage of just 40,000 coins!
Minted in 2012, the reverse of the first coin in the series, Steiermark, was designed by ten-year-old Viktoria Reicht from Kirchbach in Steiermark (Styria). The coin 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, are also featured. 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.
This coin comes in a blister pack featuring information in German and English.
