From the spectacular peak of the Dachstein to the UNESCO World Heritage beauty of the lakeside town of Hallstatt, from the banks of the Danube, the Traun and the Inn to the Bohemian Forest, Oberösterreich (Upper Austria) has something for everyone. Featuring on the ninth coin in the Austrian Mint’s educational Austria Piece by Piece series, Oberösterreich is the last of Austria’s nine provinces to be celebrated by the children who call it home.

Located in the central-northern part of Austria, bordering Germany and the Czech Republic, Oberösterreich is the country’s fourth-largest province by area and the third by population. The church on Pöstlinberg Hill in Linz, the provincial capital, features on the coin’s reverse, along with Mount Traunstein and Lake Traunsee, in a design by Klara Baumgartner from Dachseberg high school. Her design also features the legendary Glöcklerlauf, a traditional race in which the participants wear spectacular headdresses that light up the dark winter evening of the 5th of January every year, and was deemed Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2010. The picture-postcard town lakeside town of Hallstatt, which graces the coin’s obverse, is also part of a UNESCO World Heritage site.
