On the Oscar Night of the coin world, Austria came out on top as Münze Österreich AG went home with four gold awards. No other country took to the virtual stage as often at the presentation of the Coin of the Year Awards 2022, the coin world’s top honours.

The following coins were voted the best coins in their categories:

  • The Gold of the Pharaohs, the second coin in The Magic of Gold series (Best Gold Coin)
  • The two-tone silver niobium coin, Big Data (Best Bi-Metallic Coin)
  • Centenary of the Salzburg Festival (Most Artistic Coin)

The Gold of the Pharaohs also beat all the opposition to take the top overall prize, Coin of the Year Champion.

In the 39-year history of the Coin of the Year Awards, Münze Österreich AG has won more awards than any other mint. Münze Österreich AG currently employs a team of five engravers who not only design coins for the Republic of Austria but also for other countries and private clients. The tradition of coin design has a long history at Münze Österreich AG, where highly specialised know-how is passed down from engraver to engraver. We are proud and grateful that the talent of our artists, in combination with more than 825 years of coin-making expertise, has been recognised and honoured by a jury of international experts and numismatic journalists.

We hope our coin collectors are pleased that coins from their favourite series won awards, because their encouragement spurs us on to do our very best every single day.
