Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in 1945, the Official Austrian Euro Coin Set 2020 features the granite ‘Stairs of Death’ at Mauthausen concentration camp on its cover, a chilling reminder of the unprecedented suffering of the Jewish people during the conflict. During the Holocaust millions of Austrian citizens were persecuted, abducted and murdered for racist and anti-Semitic reasons. With the defeat of the Third Reich by the Allies, the Nazi reign of terror came to an end and Austria became an independent state once again.

Proof quality coins are the fruit of the most advanced minting know-how, technology and craftsmanship. Only after 22 high-precision procedures is the die used to strike the first coin, which is then subjected to the most rigorous technical demands. 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. 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

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.
