CoinTen Schilling 1965

The Ten Schilling coin was the largest denomination of the Austrian Schilling which circulated as a regular coin; it was introduced in 1957 to replace an earlier banknote.

This first type was in silver (64% silver, 36% copper), which changed to nickel in 1974.

Both the reverse and the obverse are designed by Ferdinand Welz.

The 10 Schilling coins made from silver were demonetised on 31 March 1975.

Obverse
Austria / Ten Schilling 1965 - obverse photo

Within a plain border, the obverse of the coin features a shield divided horizontally into three parts, representing the flag of Austria. The upper and the lower thirds have a background of thin vertical lines, while the centre is plain; this is "heraldic hatching" indicating 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 the rim, starting at the bottom, the inscription · REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH (Republic of Austria).

Obverse Inscription · REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH
Reverse

Below the value near the rim, in small letters the surname of the designer: WELZ (for Ferdinand Welz).
