Why not give someone a lucky coin to carry them through the New Year. It’s traditional in Austria to do so, and stylish and valuable coins have something to say and are increasingly in demand. An ideal option this New Year is the 5 euro Bicentenary of the Society of Music Lovers coin, which commemorates the venue of the famous New Year’s Concert. Struck in Special Uncirculated quality in silver, the coin cones in an impressive blister pack with text in English and a golden outer band where dedications can be written. Last year’s New Year’s coin (the Pummerin) was a best seller. Our New Year’s coins are well on their way to becoming a tradition.
