20 Francs gold coins from France originated in 1803, and by the middle of the 19th century, the coins were the basis for other 20 Francs gold coins issued by nations such as Belgium, Switzerland, and Austria. In 1870, the Austro-Hungarian Empire’s Austrian Mint began issuing 20 Francs Austrian Gold Coins with a dual face value.

The Austrian 20 Francs Gold Coins were available from 1870 until 1892 with dual face values of 20 Francs (French) and 8 Florins (Austria). The coins were intended for use as trade coinage within the empire and beyond its borders. In this product listing, the 20 Francs Gold Coins from the Austrian Mint are available as restrikes.

In 1892, the Austrian Mint struck the Austrian 20 Francs Gold Coin one last time with a one-time 1892 date mark on the reverse face of the coin. The coinage used the original designs of Franz Joseph I on the obverse and the crowned shield of the Austro-Hungarian Empire on the reverse side.

The obverse of these 20 Francs Gold Coins is available with the right-profile portrait of Franz Joseph I of Austria. The emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for nearly 68 years, Joseph I had iconic facial hair with bushy chops down his cheeks, mustache, and a clean-shaven chin. His facial hair is easily recognizable in this younger portrait of the emperor which includes a crowned wreath upon his head.

On the reverse of the Austrian 20 Francs Gold Coins is the crowned shield of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Stretching from central Europe through southern Europe at its greatest expanse, the Austro-Hungarian Empire used a crowned, two-headed eagle in its official coat of arms design. This side of the coin includes markings of the dual face values and the year of issue.
