Austria’s 10 Schilling coin features one of the most iconic coin designs of Post-War Europe. On the obverse is a youthful woman of Wachau. On the reverse, a heraldic shield.
In this CoinWeek video, we go deep into the archives of the Austrian Mint with engraver Helmut Andexlinger to admire Ferdinand Welz’s work and discuss its impact on reestablishing Austrian national identity after the war.
We also discuss the purchasing power of 10 schillings when the coin was still made of silver.
