Buy 1915 Austrian Gold 1 Ducat (.1106 oz of Gold)

The Austrian gold 1 ducats were first issued in Austria by no later than 1612. Strangely enough, the 1915 Austrian Gold 1 Ducat was not minted in 1915; the last regular issue of ducats was in 1914, and all gold ducats dated 1915 are official restrikes released by the Austrian Mint after 1920. Minted from 23.75-karat (or 98.6% pure) gold, these coins have an actual gold weight of .1106 oz.

Introduced in 1872, the obverse design features the right-facing profile of Emperor Franz Joseph I wearing the laurel crown. Inscriptions that denote his title as "AVSTRIAE IMPERATOR," or Emperor of Austria, appear around the rim. On the reverse is the Coat of Arms of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, with the date 1915 and abbreviated inscriptions for the member provinces around the entirety of the rim.

Franz Joseph ruled the Austro-Hungarian Empire for 68 years. These coins carry the date 1915, the year before Franz Joseph's death. Some 996,721 official 1915 restrikes were minted between 1920 and 1936. Many of these were subsequently remelted, reducing the extant population of these gold 1 ducat coins. Due to their size, beauty, purity and light weight, gold 1 ducat coins are popular for use in jewelry and as collectibles. Don't miss your chance to get one of these highly pure gold ducats for competitive prices from Gainesville Coins!

these little coins are very unique, i like the look of them and the fact that they are very very thin makes them look like they are much bigger and expensive than they actually are
