Generic Coin Prices
I would rather not attempt to establish values of Austrian coins but since the majority of questions I
receive are questions concerning value; I decided to list a few generic price guidelines for common
Austrian coins in average condition.  I haven't included prices for Gold coins as most of them sell
for around Gold bullion value (exceptions do exist, of course).

I welcome all non-commercial email questions or comments.  However, I do not buy and I
do not sell these coins.

1938-1945 Austria was occupied by Germany.  From 1938-1945 the German coins that were minted at the Vienna
Mint are distinguishable by their "B" mint mark.  It was assigned to the Vienna mint since the mint-mark "B" hadn't
been used since 1878 when Hanover stopped minting coins.


1945-1955 Austria was occupied by the Allied Powers, however Austrian National coinage resumed in 1946.

These price estimates are reasonably current as of Sept.  of 2005.
* Prices are approximate and value for coins in superior condition may be slightly higher and coins in below
average condition will be lower.  Prices for many of the modern Austrian minor denominations represent the
dealers stocking fee (or handling fee) as most of these coins are common enough to actually have very little
numismatic value.  The values for the modern 25, 50, 100 Schilling Coins represent a small mark-up over
bullion value.  Prices for the 500 Schilling coin represent redeemable value.  Prices will vary with the
fluctuation of the value of the Dollar verses the Euro and many vary with the bullion price of Silver.
