Product description

A three-piece set of replica silver guldens minted by the Slovak Mint of  Mincovňa Kremnica commemorates the reign of Franz Joseph I.

The characteristic face of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria still looks down on us from a plethora of historical coins. These are very diverse, as they were issued over a vast territory for many years - the Habsburg Empire, where the coins circulated, had several monetary systems and Franz Joseph I ruled there for 68 years. Payment was in crowns, kreuzers, thalers and guldens, which were also known as forints, florins or gold pieces (although they were silver). In the mid-19th century, workers or teachers earned 150 guldens a year. The annual salary of senior officials was up to 700 guldens.

The commemorative set consists of replicas of three guldens. The first is a gulden from 1857, the second one is a double gulden from 1859 and the third one is a gulden from 1866. In the relief of each replica you will find a double-headed Austrian eagle and a portrait of Franz Joseph I in profile.

The set of three coins is stored in an elegant wooden case.
