A popular tale from the Middle Ages, Charlemagne in the Untersberg is symbolic of the unwillingness of the people to accept the death of a great monarch. It is also the splendid fourth coin in the popular Austrian Tales and Legends series. Minted in 2010. Struck in 925 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.
Intricate and detailed, the coin depicts the legend of the Holy Roman Emperor and his army sleeping beneath the Untersberg near Salzburg, though ready to wake from their slumber and be called back to action once ravens ceased flying above the mountain. A simple shepherd boy was chosen by a dwarf to inform Charlemagne whether ravens were still flying, which allowed the Emperor to go back to sleep for another century and thus avoided further strife and military conflict in the region.
