All eight Special Uncirculated quality coins in the set are designed to meet the most exacting standards. As a ‘first strike’ – an early strike in a series struck from a new die – immediately after minting each coin is quality checked and packed with care to ensure that every single one is an unblemished masterpiece. Native flowers, iconic buildings and illustrious Austrians, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Nobel Peace Prize-winning novelist Bertha von Suttner, 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.
