The Austrian Ducat is a coin that goes back to at least the 17th century and quite possibly as far back as the 15th century. The coins were issued until 1914 when World War I made metal short in supply. Restrikes were minted dating 1915 with these restrikes making up the bulk of the coins available.  The year of issue you receive depends on the stock on hand.


Key features:

  • Made of .1106 oz of 98.6 pure gold
  • Dates of issue from 17th Century through 1915 (restrike)
  • While earlier dates may be included- expect to receive a 1915 restrike.
  • Face value of 1 Ducat 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
  • When purchasing multiple coins, you may receive coins of the same year


After the Austro-Hungarian Empire decided to adopt the gold standard, they decided to honor their emperor by putting his image on the obverse of the coin. So 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. 


The reverse side of the coin has the Austrian Coat of Arms over a double-headed eagle. Around the image of the double eagle is the phrase ‘“LOD ILL REX A A”, the year of issue, and “HVNGAR BOHEM GAL” which means ‘ King of Hungary, Bohemia, Galicia and Lodomeria, Illyria, Archduke of Austria’. The year of issue you receive depends on our stock on hand. If you buy multiple coins you may get the same dates of issue. 


The Austrian 1 Ducat Gold Coin is a great example of the coins of the old. This is a classic coin that should be in everyone’s collection. Get yours today.

    Disappointed. I received a 1915 restrike coin. This is not stated as a restrike in description of coin. The coin is nice looking but not what I was wanting.
