Product Details

Any quantity only $12.99 per coin over spot!
Each Austrian 4-ducat coin contains .4438 oz of fine Gold! Gold Ducats were first issued by the Kingdom of Austria in the first years of the 17th century, and possibly earlier. The last regular issue of the 4-ducat denomination for circulation was in 1914 during the last years of the reign of Franz Joseph I, emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, just before the start of World War I.

All of the Gold 4 ducat dated 1915 are re-strikes, of which there were 496,501 struck between 1920 and 1936. Four-ducat coins dated 1915 are still being produced by the Austrian Mint as official re-strikes, as is Austrian tradition for posthumous commemorative coins. The likeness of Emperor Franz Joseph I still adorns these coins.

Austrian 4 ducat are produced in high purity .986-fine Gold (23.75 carats), making them among the highest purity Gold coins ever issued for circulation. These Gold coins have inherited their design and appearance from the medieval Gold coins of Europe, as they are quite thin at just 0.7 mm when compared with modern Gold coins.

Collectors should note that these beautiful coins are a bullion issue, and they do not having any real value in a numismatic sense because of the large number of coins struck.

    very large fractional coin, high gold content,reverse was in good condition, but the obverse of the coin I received had scuff marks and abrasions unlike the photo for the advertisement, which was very disappointing.

        Comments about Austria Gold 1915 4 Ducat (AU/BU):

        The large diameter and coin design make it a real showpiece. Even though it's thin, it's very sturdy. For a fractional ounce gold coin, this is the one to get. The coin I got from APMEX was gem condition. It arrived very quickly.

        Nice coin. It is a tad thinner than a dime, but feels very solid... I dig the large diameter. The coin I received was in very nice condition.

        Comments about Austria Gold 1915 4 Ducat (AU/BU):

        This is a wonderful design to use in a necklace for someone special. The (4) Ducat is very thin. This allows for a diameter significantly larger than a gold Eagle with less than half the weight, and, of course, less than half the cost!
