Product Description

Wonderfully reminiscent of the period it portrays, the Basilisk of Vienna is the fitting first coin in the Austrian Mint’s evocative series, Austrian Tales and Legends. Struck in .925 fine Sterling silver in Special Uncirculated quality with a maximum mintage of 30,000, this coin comes in a blister pack featuring information in German and English.

Part lizard, part toad, part rooster, the Basilisk, as legend has it, lived under a baker’s shop in Schönlaterngasse in medieval Vienna, shown in its present form on the obverse of this marvelous 10 euro silver coin. To look into the Basilisk’s eyes meant instant death until a brave baker’s apprentice, in return for the hand of the baker’s daughter, turned the terrifying beast to stone with the help of a mirror that confronted the Basilisk with its own horrible appearance. This scene is vividly depicted on the coin’s reverse.
