A must for all history enthusiasts and coin collectors alike, Vindobona is the second silver 20 euro coin in our Rome on the Danube series. With unparalleled skill our engravers have brought to life the Roman garrison at its outpost on the frontier of the empire – the city known today as Vienna.

Expertly based on an ancient marble relief depicting the Marcomanni wars, the obverse of this impressive coin vividly depicts Emperor Marcus Aurelius being handed a message on horseback outside the fort of Vindobona on a plateau overlooking the Danube. This design’s ragged upper edge represents the frontier of the empire following the course of the mighty river. The fort is shown in greater detail on the coin’s equally intricate reverse where, in the presence of a standard bearer clad in an animal skin, a centurion inspects legionnaires who are dressed for battle.

Superbly struck in Proof quality with a maximum mintage of 50,000 pieces, each coin comes in a protective transparent acrylic capsule and a presentation box containing a numbered certificate of authenticity. For those keen to complete the whole six-coin collection a superb wooden case bearing the portrait of Marcus Aurelius is also available for purchase.
