History, culture and landscape, together with other elements, combine to form the special character of a country. Like most countries, Austria has the first two in abundance, but one of the things that make the country truly unique is how synonymous it is with its spectacular landscape.

Additional Information

It is no surprise, then, that a class from Dr Jonas primary school in the town of Kapfenberg placed a delightful Alpine landscape at the heart of their concept for the Austria coin. The design came about by each child drawing individual elements that were brought together as one. Surrounded by a circle of smiling children holding hands, the design beat 4,000 other entries in the national competition to design the coin. It doing so it has provided the crowning glory to the Austrian Mint’s ambitious and educational Austria Piece by Piece series.
