1 Troy ounce silver coin Austria Neustadt 2019
Brand-new! 1 Troy ounce silver coin Neustadt 2019.
This coin is struck to celebrate the 825th anniversary of the Austrian Mint. This coin is the second issue of a 3-coin series which describe the origin of the Austrian Mint.
The area around Neustadt belonged to the 'County of Pitten', property of Margrave Ottokar III of Styria in the year 1158. Duke Leopold V of Austria started building Neustadt in 1194 and created a fortress close to the Hungarian border. The fortress was paid with the silver he received as randsom for King Richard the Lionheart, who he captured earlier in one of his crusades. The castle that is depicted on the coin, Burg Wiener Neustadt, should have existed on the north-east corner of the city, but archeologists never found any evidence.
These coins have a limited mintage of only 100,000 pieces and contain 1 troy ounce fine silver.
On the reverse Burg Wiener Neustadt is depicted. On the reverse, a man on horseback is depicted, symbolizes the crusades of Leopold V. The year of issue, the weight and the face value (1.50 Euros) are also depicted on the reverse.
