Austrian Mint coins are renowned the world over for their richness of detail. But a unique occasion deserves a unique memento. As the Vienna Opera Ball, the highlight of the Vienna Ball season, celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2016, we have now gone a step further by adding printed colour to a coin for the first time.
The 2016 edition of the Vienna Opera Ball is not only the highlight of the Vienna Ball season, but also the 60th anniversary of this most dazzling of cultural events. Following a 17-year hiatus the Opera Ball was
re-established in 1956 in its original home, the newly re-opened Vienna State Opera, where it has remained ever since.
