1894 Austro-Hungary Empire 10 Heller Coin

This post will be about a 1894 Austro-Hungary Empire 10 Heller coin.  This is relatively common as there were 45.558 million of these made that year.  The metal make up of it is nickel and its weight is light at 3 grams.  On its front is an eagle with 2 heads, holding a sword in its left talon and what appears to be a royal helmet in the right.  This was the coat of arms for the Austro Hungarian Empire which was no longer at the end of the World War 1.  The back of this coin has a decorative shield with the value and the year.  Our example here appears to be in extra fine condition.

The Krone was the currency of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from the year 1892 until its liquidation at the end of the WWI.  This currency was initiated as part of its going onto the gold standard.  The Heller was a subdivision (100 to 1) of the Krone.
