Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin was designed and engraved by mint engraver Helmut Andexlinger. It depicts a mighty red deer with a rack of 12 points, calling out its presence. The background is a marshy area often frequented by deer. In the foreground Helmut added some stylised grasses and sedges highlighting the coin’s 3D effect. The obverse also bears the country of issue, «Republik Oesterreich», the 2013 year of issue and the face value 100 euros. The reverse was designed and engraved by the Mint’s Chief engraver, Thomas Pesendorfer. He has depicted a family of deer, stag, doe and fawn, posing in a densely wooded forest with a peaceful river in the background. A curious otter and frog look onto the scene. A lovely marsh marigold plant blooms in the foreground.
