The Austrian 20 Corona Gold is literally a piece of one of the greatest empires of the 19th century, the Austro-Hungarian Empire. When the empire decided to adopt the gold standard, it is only natural that they honor their emperor, Franz Joseph I, on the obverse. These coins were issued from 1892 to 1916. The year of issue you receive depends on the stock on hand.


Key features:

  • Contains .1960 Troy oz of actual gold content
  • Dates of issue 1892-1916
  • Face value of 20 Corona 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 get two 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. At the top is ‘20 Coronae’ and the year of issue in Roman numerals. At the bottom is ‘20 Cor’ and the year of issue. 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 20 Corona is an opportunity to add a piece of Austrian history to your collection. It is also an opportunity to add some gold to your collection. By allowing us to choose the year, you get a better price than if you bought a specific year. Get yours today.
