Five Schilling 1990, Coin from Austria (demonetised 2002)
CoinFive Schilling 1990

The Five Schilling coin was a 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 5 Schilling coins was in aluminium, but after only two issues it was upgraded to silver - later debased again to CuproNickel (copper-nickel) with composition of 75% copper and 25% nickel.

The reverse was designed by Josef Köblinger, and the obverse by Hans Köttenstorfer.

Austrian 5 Schilling coins issued in 1990 circulated for 12 years until the denomination was demonetised, together with all the other Schilling coinage, in 2002 when the country changed to the Euro currency.

Reverse
Austria / Five Schilling 1990 - reverse photo

Within a plain rim, the reverse of the coin shows the shield from the Coat of Arms of Austria. It is divided horizontally into three parts; the upper and the lower thirds have a background of thin vertical lines, while the centre is plain, which is known as "heraldic hatching" and indicates colour - the vertical lines are for red, and no lines are for white. Thus, it displays the colours of the flag of Austria - red-white-red.

Around below, two olive branches. Above the shield, a large numeral 5 for the value; around above, the denomination SCHILLING.

The date of issue, 1990, is small and is divided by the shield.
