The Austrian Mint
Description of obverse and reverse
The obverse of the Styria coin features the old center of the city of Graz, the capital of the province of Styria. Near the top of the design one notes the famous clock tower. Progressing to the front of the design the coin captures: the town hall, the baroque cathedral, and in right foreground is the Palace of Eggenberg. Also located on this obverse side of each coin is the country of issue, “REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH”, the year of issue 2012 and the face value of 10 euros. The reverse: Viktoria’s delightful design for the reverse features first and foremost the mountains of her home and the "green” heart in the center of it all. Of course, many forests, trees, apples and the fields of sunflowers that she associates with Styria are prominent in her design as well. The design is completed with a couple of pumpkins which Styria is well known for and from which the famous pumpkin seed oil is produced. Finally, the fresh streams that run throughout the region also “run” along the bottom edge of her design.
A brief annotation
The Austrian Mint has issued the first of a new 10 coin series entitled “Austria, by its Children.” The reverse of this first silver coin to be issued was designed by 10 year old Ms. Viktoria Reicht. Her design was anonymously selected from the thousands submitted through a competition in which all children aged 9 and 10 were invited to submit a design about their home province of Styria.
