Just as gold lasts forever, the mighty Alps will rise for eternity. Having said that, environmental contamination and mass tourism have taken their toll over the past century. Alpine Treasures is a three-coin series that highlights the rare species of plants and animals that are native to the Austrian Alps and shows off the multifaceted nature of the country’s spectacular mountain landscape. In doing so, it provides a gorgeous golden glimpse of the monumental peaks of the Hohe Tauern National Park, of the lush green valleys of the Kalkalpen and of the wild waters of Gesäuse National Park. Only the Alps themselves are more beautiful.
The coin’s obverse features different images of the native Alpenbreitschötchen above the rare, endemic plant’s Latin name, Braya Alpina, which is written at the bottom. The coin’s reverse shows a view of the Hohe Tauern National Park in which a golden eagle can be seen soaring in the left foreground. Behind the protected species stands the majestic Grossglockner, at 3,798 metres above sea level, Austria’s highest mountain. Hohe Tauern is written in the bottom right-hand corner of the coin.
