1930 Austria 2 Schilling

We’ll have a look at a 1930 Austria 2 Schilling which is 64 percent silver.  The first picture has the front of the coin which displays 9 shields, a reference to the Austrian provinces that make up that country.  The reverse which is the second picture has Walther von der Vogelweide who was a poet that lived in the middle age period.  He spent much time, many years wandering around without a permanent home and was known to speak his mind without censor.

This posting will be on the subject of a 1924 Austria 200 Kronen Coin which can be viewed in the photos below.  On the front of it is written Osterreich (Austria) below which is a cross and at the bottom the date.  On the other side (reverse) there is the denomination of 200.  There were 57.16 million of these struck in the year 1924 which was the only year the 200 Kronen was made as far as I can tell.  This coin is made from Bronze and has a weight of 3.33 grams and was made at the end of hyper-inflationary period which ended with the introduction of the Schilling.

Here we are going to talk about an Austrian 1 Schilling coin from the year 1947.  See pictures of it below.  On its obverse is an image of agriculture perhaps as it has a man with a sand bag in his left hand and dropping seeds from his right hand.  The coin’s value is on his sides and around the rim is the name of the country: Republik Osterreich or in English Austria.  The back side has an image of the coat of arms there with the year designated below.  This coin is lite in weight at just 2 grams because of this compositional metal which is aluminum.  Its diameter measures 25 millimeters and there were 35.838 million of these struck in 1947.  Our particular coin has seen little in the way of circulation and appears to be in extra fine condition.

1947 Austrian 2 Schilling Coin Koin Dari Negara Austria Dua Schilling Tahun 1947

We will take a look at an Austrian (Osterreich) 2 Schilling coin from 1947.  This coin is made from the metal aluminum and is approximately 2.8 grams as far as weight is concerned.  The front side has the Austrian coat of arms which is an eagle, with a shield in its center.  It is holding a hammer in its right talon and a sickle in its left.  The back of this coin has its denomination of 2 Schillings, the year of 1947 and signs of agriculture which include grains of wheat, grapes etc.  This coin in the pictures below would likely grade almost uncirculated.

Austria or Osterreich uses the Euro as its currency now but formerly used the Schilling.  It was used from 1924 until 2002 with a break in the middle from 1938 until 1945 (when the Reichsmark was used because of annexation by Germany prior to WWII and which ended at the end of the war).
