Ten Euro Cents, Austria, Coin Type from Austria - detailed information

Ten Euro Cents, Austria, Coin Type from Austria (issued 2002 - )
Coin TypeTen Euro Cents, Austria

The Ten Euro Cents coin (€0.10) has a value of one tenth of a Euro and is composed of an alloy called Nordic Gold (89% copper, 5% aluminium, 5% zinc, and 1% tin). Like all other common circulation coins (from 1 cent to €2), the denomination is issued by the separate countries in the Eurozone and is legal tender in all of them, irrespective of which country has issued it. The denomination was introduced in 2002, when Austria retired the Austrian Schilling currency and introduced the Euro.

The coins have a common reverse designed by Luc Luycx in 1999 which showed a map of the European Union; it was changed in 2007 to reflect the enlargement of the Union, and later coins show all of western Europe. Each country has its own national obverse; the Austrian obverse was designed by Josef Kaiser.

Austrian Ten Euro Cents feature Saint Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna (in German: Stephansdom), the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna and the seat of the Archbishop of Vienna; it is the epitome of Viennese Gothic architecture and was dates back to 1160. Austria is the only country which uses the Latin alphabet, and yet repeats the denomination on the national side of the coins - thus not adhering to a rule which only allows members of the Eurozone to show the denomination in their own language if it uses non-Latin script.

All Austrian coins are struck by the Austrian Mint in Vienna.
