Austrian Corona Gold Bullion Coin - Restrike

Austrian Gold Bullion Coin
Fineness: .900 Actual Gold Content: 0.9803 troy ounce
Minted face value: 100 corona
Originally minted as circulation coinage from 1909 to 1914,
coins of this design, dated 1915, were restruck as bullion items.

Austrian 100 Coronas were among the first gold bullion coins available when Americans regained the right to own gold bullion on December 31, 1974. 100 Coronas, as the coins are dubbed, are minted of .900 fine (21.6 karat) gold, and each coin contains 0.9802 ounce of gold.

Austrian 100 Coronas are restrikes dated 1915 (a restrike is an official reproduction of a coin that once was minted for circulation.) Rarely do original Austrian 100 Corona gold coins, with earlier dates, show up. The front bears the profile of Franz Joseph I, the Austrian Emperor 1848-1916. The reverse displays the Austrian Coat of Arms, a double eagle with crown. The edges of Austrian 100 Coronas are lettered Vnitis Viribvs.

Austrian 100 Coronas are no longer minted and, therefore, are neither advertised nor promoted. As a result, Austrian 100 Coronas are among the lowest-premium gold bullion coins available.
