Description of obverse and reverse
In the center of the obverse is a color image of the clock face, on which, in addition to Roman numerals, 12 signs of the zodiac are shown. On the ring below are the gears of the clock mechanism. The following are indicated: the year of coinage - "2016", the notation of the minute interval - "5", "35", "40", "45", "50","55","60", semicircular inscriptions - "REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH", "25 EURO". The reverse shows solar, lunar, sand, electronic watches, even stylized nanoseconds. In the lower part of the coin is engraved the name of the coin – "ZEIT".
A brief annotation
The theoretical meaning of time may have long been a major subject of debate among philosophers, physicists and religious figures, but the more practical discipline of its measurement has proved to be less of a mystery. Dedicated to the history of chronometry, the latest ingenious addition to the Austrian Mint’s best-selling two-tone silver niobium coins, ‘Time’ uses its two-tone niobium core and outer silver ring to show a selection of timepieces throughout the ages.
