Product Details
New from the Austrian Mint, Austria’s Unsung Heroines is dedicated to five of Austria’s great women who received far too little attention for their achievements in the arts and sciences.

The series explores what it meant to be a creative and talented woman in Austria during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, looks at the obstacles they had to overcome, and highlights the successes of the women featured in their five different fields.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1/4 oz of .986 fine gold.
  • Coins are packaged in the original box with a certificate of authenticity.
  • Obverse: The obverse of the coin shows Veza Canetti in profile.
  • Reverse: A portrait of the writer is also featured on the coin’s reverse behind one of her husband, Elias Canetti, so as to emphasize how she was overshadowed by the Nobel Prize winner. Her likeness is surrounded by text excerpts from Yellow Street and Patience Brings Roses.
  • Guaranteed by the Austrian Mint.

About Unsung Heroines
In the early 1930s, Veza Canetti was a more successful writer than her husband Elias, who would eventually go on to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, yet she was to remain an unknown author until some 30 years after her death in 1963.

Born Venetiana "Veza" Taubner-Calderon into a Sephardi-Jewish family in Vienna in 1897, Veza Canetti was a novelist, playwright and short story writer whose work was published under numerous pseudonyms. Despite working to support herself and her husband after they had fled Vienna for England following the annexation of Austria by the German Reich in 1938, Veza continued writing. But after her work was rejected for publication, she destroyed some of her manuscripts and remained in the background as Elias' creative adviser. It was not until the 1990s, once her pseudonyms had been deciphered, that her work, including the novel Yellow Street and the collection of stories Patience Brings Roses, was published to great acclaim under the name Veza Canetti.

Having become famous in the meantime, Elias Canetti later recognized that Veza’s contribution to his psychological study of crowd behavior, Crowds and Power, was as important as his own. Therefore, Veza Canetti can also be considered to be the co-author of some of her celebrated husband’s body of work.
