Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang – Amadeus – Mozart

Wolfgang, Amadeus and Mozart are the names on three silver coins dedicated to Austria’s most famous son. Wolfgang (2015), the first coin, is dedicated to Mozart’s boyhood as a wunderkind; Amadeus (2016), the second coin, to his short but prolific adult life, which established his genius; while the third coin, Mozart (2016), focuses on his musical afterlife and the legend that he became after his premature death. To a certain extent the three coins represent the three acts that made up Mozart’s life as well as his amazing legacy, which lives on more than 200 years after his death.

The obverse of each coin in the series boasts a portrait of Mozart, while the reverse shows a detail from one of Mozart’s works from the period in question. Wolfgang features the comic opera, Bastien und Bastienne (1768), Amadeus features Don Giovanni (1787), while Mozart features the Magic Flute (1791).

Mozart Three Times

The first coin in this three-part series is dedicated to Mozart’s childhood, which began in Salzburg on 27 January 1756. It soon became apparent that a genius had come into the world; one that worked wonders and still does today. A 1993 study claimed that Mozart’s music makes the listener more intelligent. Subsequent studies could not confirm this, but there is little doubt that Mozart’s music makes things seem better. This is a very special coin for a very special child.

The sublime second coin in the Austrian Mint’s three-coin Mozart series, Amadeus shines the spotlight on Mozart during his adult years. The Vienna music world made him rich, yet he died in debt. But this little gem shows that the music of the greatest composer of all time is priceless.

A profile portrait of a pensive Mozart graces the obverse of the third and final coin in our Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart series. Painted by his brother-in-law Joseph Lange, the portrait gives the impression that Mozart is eavesdropping on his inner music. The reverse shows a scene from his best-loved Opera, The Magic Flute. At its premiere in 1791, the opera received a great response from the audience, yet just a few weeks after this triumph, Mozart was dead at the tender age of 35. He may have died young but his legend lives on.
