General Frequently Asked Questions

It is possible to obtain circulation-quality one-cent to € 2 coins in all Austrian commercial and savings banks. The coins intended for circulation are produced by us on behalf of the Austrian National Bank as needed and distributed by the latter to Austrian commercial and savings banks. We don't sell them ourselves.

Every year, however, we offer the complete set of euro coins in the qualities "special uncirculated" and "proof". You can also get the € 5 and € 10 copper coins through us.

Unfortunately, we are unable to reproduce any folders of older issues or magazines due to copyright law, also not in return for payment.

In the past a product folder was published for each collector's coin. With the exception of ongoing series, we will no longer be able to offer this service for future coins. The reasons for this are unpleasant experiences with some customers and the increasingly complicated legal situation.

For example, customers have told us that a folder on the coin is expected when selling the coin. If there isn't one, the coin may be valued for less. People who are given coins as a gift or who inherit them are also finding themselves confronted with this. Eliminating the product folder is advantageous to all of them. The legal situation is complicated when someone wants to sell one of our product folders or use one to find out about the coins being sold (for example on forums, eBay, Willhaben, Amazon). It is important to observe trademark, ancillary copyright and copyright law. Customers have already been threatened with lawsuits in this regard.

For all future coins we are unfortunately unable to offer such product folders any longer. However, the elimination of the product folder will make it easier for collectors offering coins on the secondary market, where the folder is often expected to be provided with the coin. If there isn't one, the coin may be valued for less. People who are given coins as a gift or who inherit them are also finding themselves confronted with this.

The good news: the elimination of the product folder had to be given thorough consideration because we knew it was, and is, highly appreciated. But the task of informing our customers satisfactorily about the key data of the respective coin and entertaining them with an informative text on the coins has also been met by other advertising materials. Our quarterly magazine, certificates and packaging texts as well as our website will do this to a more considerable extent in the future. A particular wealth of information is also provided by the scrapbooks. We thank you for your understanding.

Uncirculated quality:

Uncirculated coins correspond to the quality of the copper coins at nominal value and, likewise manufactured by the Austrian Mint, the euro and cent coins intended for circulation. All of these coins have successfully passed all quality controls.
All of our investment coins correspond to uncirculated quality and are not traded at nominal value, but at the current price of the precious metal.

Special uncirculated quality:

Coins of special uncirculated quality meet the highest standards. Precision craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology turn a simple blank into an exquisite masterpiece and show the design of the coin to its best advantage. Immediately after it has been struck, every coin is closely examined and carefully packaged. With a coin of special uncirculated quality you are sure to have a first-rate piece.

Proof quality:

Coins of proof quality are the highest standard of minting quality. They are the result of precious experience and state-of-the-art technology. The die alone undergoes 22 high-precision steps before the first coin is struck. The interplay which the artists carefully consider between a proof-quality coin’s polished, gleaming and matte surfaces ensures an extraordinary numismatic experience. Before each coin leaves the Austrian Mint, it is examined in meticulous detail, ensuring that artistic design, precision craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology have successfully transformed a piece of metal into a work of art.

The primary difference is that coins are or were always official legal tender of a country and are always stamped with a nominal value (e.g. € 10).

Medals are not official legal tender. That means you cannot make purchases with them. Every private person and every institution can manufacture or commission "commemorative coins" and determine the mintage, material, motif, etc., themselves. Whether the medals are produced in official mints or privately plays no role.

As we only offer the latest euro coins, we recommend purchasing older issues from coin dealers. The coin dealers in your region can be found under or
