This is one of the most beautiful coins that have ever been minted. This coin originates from Austria and features several designs on the golden coin that hint at this heritage. On the obverse side of this coin is the Emperor Franz Joseph I who is facing left in a profile position. The detail that went into his face and clothes is nothing short of incredible. On the reverse side of the coin is the heraldic coat of arms of Austria, in exquisite detail along with the mint location and the year that the coin was issued.
Each of these coins has .4438 oz, or 4 ducats, worth of gold in each piece. It is incredibly useful in the realm of investment and hedging against inflation. They contain a fair amount of gold, and the coins are rare enough that they can bring a very fair price in terms of investment and sales. Either as a commodity or an addition to a burgeoning international gold coin collection, this is absolutely a must have for many people.
