Order your 1 oz 2019 Leopold V 825th Austrian Mint Anniversary silver coin from our online store now, to be treated to the internet's most competitive price. This eye catching work of art commemorates the tale of the founding of the renowned Vienna Mint.

The reverse features the legendary Duke Leopold V of Austria, donning full regalia, with sword primed and banners flying in a high wind. The only inscription interrupting this dynamic and poignant effigy is the number ‘1194,’ (A.D.) at the end of which year Leopold met his savage fate…after a fall from his steed, A solider then was forced to amputate his foot, which led to a nasty infection and Leopold’s eventual death by gangrene.

The obverse is home to a portrait one of Leopold’s own crusading party, shown in stylized relief, at arms atop his trusty mount. Also on the obverse, you’ll find the Austrian legend, as well as the unique denominational value of the coin, its metal content, its weight and the year of its release.

The Vienna Mint was founded on the ransom, in silver, which was paid by the desperate people of England, in return for the release of their King, Richard ‘The Lionheart,’ whom Leopold had cunningly seen fit to hold hostage, after the two had had a heated meeting of tempers in 1191. Celebrate the riotous saga and intrigue upon which some of the world’s greatest institutions were founded and diversify your portfolio with a 1 oz 2019 Leopold V 825th Austrian Mint Anniversary silver coin today!
