Situated in the north east of the country, Niederösterreich is both Vienna’s immediate hinterland and Austria’s largest province. A place where industry and agriculture coexist, it also boasts areas of exquisite natural beauty, none more so than the Wachau. Here, beneath terraced vineyards, ruined castles and ancient monasteries, the mighty Danube forms one of the world’s most spectacular river valleys. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it makes for the perfect centrepiece of the third 10 euro silver coin in our superb Austria Piece by Piece series.
Struck in celebration of the 2013 Lower Austria Exhibition, this splendid silver Proof quality medal beautifully conveys one thousand years of cultural history through "bread and wine", the slogan of the exhibition, which takes place among the picturesque wine cellars of the towns of Asparn an der Zaya and Poysdorf.
LET THE PREHISTORIC ADVENTURE BEGIN...
The first coin in our Prehistoric Life: Back from the Dead series, Triassic illustrates the geologic period when all the Earth’s continents were joined together in one vast landmass known as Pangaea. The supercontinent was surrounded by a vast ocean called Panthalassa in whose waters the prehistoric flora and fauna that feature on both sides of this marvellous coin once lived.
Struck in 24 carat 999.9/1000 pure gold, Vienna Philharmonics are the world’s leading pure bullion gold coins. Sought after in Europe, North America and Japan alike, they make an ideal choice for investors everywhere. As legal tender, Vienna Philharmonics also have the added advantage of global acceptability and are easily traded wherever major bullion coins are sold.
