Description of obverse and reverse Mint engraver Helmut Andexlinger designed the coin. On the obverse he created an excellent depiction of the soft-spoken humanist, Stefan Zweig. Zweig is holding one of his books while his kind eyes look out directly towards you. Behind his book is a typewriter, above which is located the face value of 20 euros. Zweig's signature is found in the foreground of the design. The obverse side of the coin also bears the “Europa Star” privy mark of the European silver program, as well as the country of issue «Republik Oesterreich», Republic of Austria. The reverse features one of his most famous works, “The Royal Game”, also known as Chess or «Schachnovelle». Helmut has included on this side of the coin some of the key thematic elements of this work including in the center the bow of a large ocean-going steam ship on which the name «Schachnovelle» is captured, as well as the image of the protagonist. It is on the ocean vessel that the chess game between the world champion and other passengers takes place. Stefan Zweig is seen on the reverse looking at the chessboard, symbol of the challenges confronting the protagonist who sees his two personas in the white and black chess pieces. The mental anguish which this causes forces the protagonist into a mental health institute noted by the figure in stripes, peering out of the window equipped with large heavy bars.
A brief annotation The 2013 Europa star silver coin series celebrates «European Authors» and the Austrian Mint will honor the humanist and pacifist Stefan Zweig to be featured on the Austrian coin.

Насколько монеты Австрии и Финляндии отличаются друг от друга. Я не прав?
