Depicting the nine provinces of Austria seen through the eyes of their young citizens, Austria by its Children is a unique and ambitious ten-coin project supported by the Ministry of Education. A land of lakes, mountains and summer sunshine, the province of Carinthia features in all its beauty on the delightful second 10 euro silver coin in the series.

Sharing a border with Slovenia in the south of the country, Carinthia is home to numerous bilingual schools, which is why ten-year-old Philip Ogris chose to place the name of his home province in both German and Slovenian at the bottom of his competition-winning design on the coin’s reverse. Ibexes, the legendary Lindwurm of Klagenfurt and the crystal-clear waters of Lake Wörthersee also make an appearance, while the coin’s obverse depicts an example of Carinthia’s intangible cultural heritage, as recognised by UNESCO, in the shape of falconry. The superb design by Austrian Mint award-winning designer Thomas Pesendorfer depicts this ancient art being practiced in the grounds of medieval Landskron Castle near Villach, Carinthia’s second largest city.
 
This handsome coin is the fruit of the very highest production standards and comes in both Special Uncirculated quality and Proof quality in silver, and Circulation quality in copper, each with different packing.
