The Austrian 4 Florin/ 10 Franc Gold Coin is rather unusual in that it has dual face values. Before the adoption of the euro, one solution to crossing borders and paying for goods was to have a coin with a face value. In France, this coin was worth 10 Francs while in Austria and Hungary, the coin was worth 4 Florin. This eliminated the need to convert currency when traveling to neighboring countries. The actual date you receive depends on the stock on hand. 

 

Key features:

  • Contains .0933 Troy oz of actual gold content
  • Available from 1870-1891 date you receive dependent on stock on hand
  • Face value of 4 Florin/10 Francs issued by Austria-Hungary
  • On the obverse side of the coin has the image of Franz Joseph I
  • The reverse side has the Austrian Coat of Arms
  • Multiple coins may end up being the same date

 

The 10 Franc coin was a popular denomination in France during the rule of Napoleon Bonaparte. Because the Austro-Hungarian Empire encompassed large swatches of land in Central and South Europe, the decision was made to make a 10 Franc coin that also was a 4 Florin coin. This way the coin could be used within the borders of Austria-Hungary borders and outside its borders. 

 

On the obverse of the coin is a detailed rendition of Franz Joseph I, emperor of the empire. Here he is shown here with a crown of laurel leaves and the great detail really shows off his epic mustache and beard. Above his head is ‘FRANCISCUS JOSEPHUS I.D.G. IMPERATOR ET. REX’ which in Latin means, Franz Joseph I, by the Grace of God, Emperor, and King. 

 

The reverse side of the coin has the Austrian Coat of Arms over a double-headed eagle. At the top is ‘IMPERIVM AVSTRIACVM’.  At the bottom are ‘4 Fl’’ and ‘10 Fr’ and the year of issue. This coin has a dual denomination of eight florin and twenty francs.
