1915 Austria Gold 100 Coronas UNC
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 0.9803 ounce of gold. Coin has a diameter of 35mm.
The 100 Corona was originally issued as a legal tender coin between 1908 and 1914, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the reign of the Austrian Emperor Franz Josef I. After his death in 1916 the Vienna Mint struck all the 1915 coins as commemoratives, as was the Austrian tradition. It is difficult to ascertain when the mint stopped minting the 100 Coronas, or how many were produced. Suffice it to say that there were many. Only 16,000 of the original 1908 to 1914 coins were produced, and are rarely seen.
The obverse 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.
