One Schilling, Coin Type from Austria - detailed information

One Schilling, Coin Type from Austria (issued 1946 - 2001)
Coin TypeOne Schilling

The One Schilling coin was the main circulating denomination of the Austrian Schilling, which was restored as the currency of the Republic of Austria when the republic itself was restored after World War II in 1945. Between 1947 and 1952, coins in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 groschen; and 1, 2, and 5 schilling were introduced. The first type of 1 Schilling was struck in aluminium, but this was changed to a second type of 1 Schilling in aluminium bronze in 1959. The latter was issued in circulation quantities until 1997, and for collectors' sets until 2001.

Together with all the other Schilling coinage, the One Schilling denomination was demonetised after 28 February 2002 when the country changed to the Euro currency.
