The penultimate coin in our popular Austrian Tales and Legends series is the Lindwurm in Klagenfurt. Not only is this spectacular 10 euro silver coin essential for all those determined to complete the series, it is also a miniature masterpiece that makes an ideal gift for all fantasy fans.

Today a landmark in Klagenfurt, where it is carved in stone next to a statue of Hercules, the Lindwurm was, according to local folklore, a dragon-like beast that terrorised the peasants and inhibited trade around the Carinthian capital in the Middle Ages. Designed by chief engraver Thomas Pesendorfer, the obverse of this magnificent coin shows the mythical beast’s present-day resting place, while the reverse tells the story of its slaughter in impressively dramatic detail designed by his colleague Helmut Andexlinger.

Struck in 925 Sterling silver in Proof or Special Uncirculated quality with a maximum mintage of 40,000 and 30,000, respectively, both coins are issued in attractive packaging. However, a special collectors’ album resembling a handsome old book of classic tales for collecting all six Proof coins in this fantastic series is also available for purchase.
