Each 25 Schilling Austrian Gold Coin available to you today at Silver.com ships in protective plastic to ensure the coin’s currency condition persists. The coins are available with a year of issue date ranging from 1926 to 1938. The 25 Schillings denomination was struck with two different reverse designs during its 12-year history.
25 Schilling Austrian Gold Coins struck from 1926 to 1934 have a simpler design on the reverse that includes a ring of edelweiss around the face value of the coin. Those coins issued near the end of the production period from 1935 to 1938 include the effigy of St. Leopold, the man who is viewed as the patron saint of Austria.
The obverse of all 25 Schilling Austrian Gold Coins featured here come with the design of the nation’s coat of arms. Austria’s coat of arms includes a nod to its past with the imperial eagle featured in the center. The eagle holds tools that represent the nation’s agricultural and industrial prowess in the form of a hammer and sickle. Engravings on this face are in German, the official language of Austria, and read “Republik Osterreich.” Translated into English, this means Austrian Republic.
On the reverse of the 25 Schilling Austrian Gold Coins are one of two options. The primary design is one of edelweiss around the face value of “25 Schilling.” The year of issue is engraved below that with the numbers split into two digits on either side of wheat sprigs. Below the wheat sprigs is the name Hartig, a famed Austrian medalist who helped create coinage designs at times for the Austrian Mint.
An alternative option comes from the 1935 to 1938 issue years. During this period, the 25 Schilling Austrian Gold Coins had the image of St. Leopold. He was the Margrave of Austria from 1095 to his death in 1136, and in 1485 was named the patron saint of Austria.
