    No other Austrian province is as resonant outside Austria as the Tyrol. Its famous feathered hats are partly responsible for that; so too are its soaring alpine peaks, which captured the world’s imagination during the 1976 Winter Olympics in the provincial capital, Innsbruck. For many those peaks represent the archetypical Austrian landscape, but the Tyrol is far more than that. Steeped in culture, it is Austria’s third largest province and the only one split into two parts, North and East Tyrol. The sixth coin in our educational Austria Piece by Piece series, which was co-designed by the country’s school children, celebrates this enchanting land.

Tyrol coin

The most familiar of Austrian provinces abroad thanks in part to its traditional feathered hats, the Tyrol features on the sixth coin in the Austrian Mint’s enlightening Austria Piece by Piece series. Hats of a different nature are worn by the men of the “Telfer Schleicherlaufen” – a folkloric dance festival recognised by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage – who are depicted in intricate detail on the coin’s obverse. The festival takes place every five years, including 2015, in the town of Telf, which is shown in the background nestling under one of the many high peaks in this rugged land. The alpine theme is continued on the coin’s reverse in a collage that won the school competition to co-design the coin. In its centre, next to other famous Tyrolean symbols, lies a Tyrolean hat.
