Austrian Corona Gold Bullion Coin - Restrike
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
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.
