The Austrian Schilling was perhaps one of the most widely circulated coins in continental Europe. It was in circulation in Austria from 1925 to 1938 and again from 1045 to 1999. The Austrian Schilling was replaced by the Euros as national currency. One of the most popular denominations was the 25 Schilling that was available between World War 1 and World War 2.

The Austrian Mint issued the 25 schilling coin from 1926-1938. The schilling was the national currency during the time between both World Wars. This was a precarious period as the new republic was getting on its feet following the Austro-Hungarian Empire breakup. They continued to be available until the invasion of Austria in 1938. 

 

During the window of time these coins were offered, there were two different designs. From 1926 to 1934 the reverse side of the coin just had the face value of the coin. From 1935 to 1938, the Austrian Mint added the image of St. Leopold. 

 

The obverse side of these coins have Austria’s coat of arms. This coat of arms has an eagle in the middle and he is holding a hammer in one of its claws and a sickle in the other. These tools are symbolic of Austria’s rich history of industry and agriculture. Also on this side is ‘REPUBLIK’ above the image and ‘OSTERREICH’ below it. 

 

On the reverse had edelweiss, the distinctive European mountain plant, framing ‘25 Schilling’ and the year of issue. Below the design is ‘HARTIG’ which is a reference to Arnold Hartig. Later, the decision was made to add, St. Leopold, the patron saint of Austria, to the reverse side of the coin. This image ran from 1935 to 1938.
