The Austrian Mint itself has a rich history. It was developed in 1194 in order to strike silver paid in ransom for the release of Englands Richard the Lionhearted. Austrias Duke Leopold V had recorded the English monarch as Richard tried to go through the location undiscovered after a falling out during the Crusades. For more than 800 years the Austrian Mint has been worldwide popular for producing exceptional coins.
