Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the nine-sided coin is the standard 5-euro design, with the denomination encircled by the shields of the nine federal provinces of Austria. In the center is the face value of 5 euros. Mint engraver Helmut Andexlinger designed the obverse. The reverse of the coin depicts a delightful couple in full swing, dancing the graceful waltz. Dressed in elegant full ballroom dress, the lady’s full skirt and scarf-trimmed arms emphasize the swish of their move to the music. Perfectly in step with her, the gentleman is shown in full tux and tails with the swing of the tails also highlighting their movement. It is easy to imagine being there in person as the couple gracefully waltzes by in three quarter time. In the background are the twinkling stars and fireworks, all adding to the festive atmosphere of a waltz. Also on this side of the coin are the words «Wiener Walzer», or «Viennese Waltz» engraved into the design in a lyrical style. This side of the coin was designed and engraved by the Mint’s chief engraver Thomas Pesendorfer.
A brief annotation Issued as «New Years Coin», meanwhile the 3rd in a row starting back in 2011 with the 5-Euro coin «The Pummerin Bell 1711 – 2011». The coin is sold at the traditional New Year’s Eve Trail in the Old City arround St. Stephens Cathedral too.

Глядя на монету, не слышится венского вальса, а должно. Авторам с такими вещами нужно быть весьма аккуратными. Коллекционеры очень требовательны к таким темам. Здесь - не удалось.
