Native flowers, iconic buildings and illustrious Austrians grace each of the eight coins. Ideal as a gift, a lasting memento or a fitting souvenir of Austria, this complete euro coin set comprises each of the euro and cent coins in circulation.

Celebrating a century of democracy

With the end of the First World War came the end of a political system that had lasted for many centuries: the founding of the Austrian Republic on 12 November 1918 marked the end of the Habsburg Monarchy and the beginning of a new epoch. To celebrate this momentous occasion, a 2 euro coin featuring the statue of Pallas Athena, which stands proudly in front of the Parliament building in Vienna, has been issued. The Greek goddess of wisdom watches over the country and  by looking up to her, Austrian citizens honour the spirit in which their Republic was founded. The centenary of the Republic is an occasion for all Austrians to value freedom and democracy  as precious commodities that should not be taken for granted and to understand that by learning from history they can shape the present and have the courage to face the future.

2 Euro – Centenary of the Founding of the Republic of Austria

In its brass core, the coin shows a detail of the statue of Pallas Athena that stands in front of the neoclassical Parliament building in Vienna. The goddess of wisdom wears an Attic helmet decorated with a sphinx. Both the Parliament (completed in 1883) and the Pallas Athena fountain (1902) were based on designs by Theophil von Hansen. Pallas Athena serves as a symbol of Austrian parliamentarianism and signifies knowledge, reason and strategic ability.
