This impressive ducat coin, representing the last royal gold of the famous Austrian Empire, is a great addition to any collection. The combination of beauty, precious gold content and numismatic value is hard to beat. Dated 1915, it is the last royal gold of the Austrian Empire that met defeat in World War I. These precious gold issues were restruck from original dies by the Vienna Mint from 1920-1936. The obverse engraving features Franz Josef, who was Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary from 1848 until his death in 1916. The reverse shows the impressive double-headed eagle royal crest with exquisite detailing.
