Celebrating half a millennium since the completion of the tomb of Holy Roman Emperor Friedrich III (1415–1493), the Official Austrian Euro Coin Set 2017 features a detail of the impressive red marble sarcophagus in Vienna’s St Stephen’s Cathedral. Although the tomb was completed in 1517, the mortal remains of Friedrich III, whose rule lay the foundations of the Habsburg dynasty, were actually interred in the tomb three years earlier, when the monarch had already been dead for 20 years. One of the most important late gothic sculptures in existence, it was certainly worth the wait.

The interplay between a Proof coin’s polished and frosted surfaces provides the ideal environment for numismatic artists to display their skills and creates a unique visual experience. Before each coin leaves the Austrian Mint it is scrutinised in great detail to guarantee that design, craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology have successfully transformed a simple piece of metal into a work of art. 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.

2 Euro 
The first woman ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, early 20th-century Austrian pacifist and novelist Bertha von Suttner features on the largest coin.

1 Euro
Born in Salzburg, Austria’s most famous composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, will forever be remembered for his dominance of Viennese classical music during his short life.

50 Cent
The jewel in the Viennese Modernist crown, the Secession exhibition hall still exudes modernity more than a century after it was built.

20 Cent
A masterpiece of Baroque architecture, the Belvedere was once the palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy. Today it is home to some of the world’s most famous paintings, including The Kiss by Gustav Klimt.

10 Cent
Construction began on Vienna’s gothic St Stephen's cathedral over 800 years ago. Its roof and tower, which feature on the 10 cent coin, still dominate the Vienna skyline today.

5 Cent
The three smallest coins in the collection are all decorated with alpine flowers. The 5 cent piece with primula auricula, the mountain cowslip.

2 Cent
Made world famous by the song from the musical The Sound of Music, the edelweiss adorns the 2 cent coin.

1 Cent
The smallest coin in circulation rounds of the 2017 coin set’s trio of alpine flower with a gentian.
