Medals & Tokens
|Willkommen Österreichische Münzen, Medaillen und Zeichen
The first coins minted in the land later to be known as Austria were created by the Celts who were active in the
area during the 5th through the 1st century BC. Between the Celts and today, coins were minted by the Romans,
(the Romans probably didn't mint coins in Austria but had them imported from their already established mints)
various kingdoms and emperors, the Babenburgs, Archbishoprics of the Holy Roman Empire, the Hapsburgs, the
First Republic, the National Socialists (Nazis 1938-1945) and the Austrian Second Republic.
Modern Austria, the Second Republic (1946-present), produces coins to meet the demands of commerce and for
collectors and is well known for the exceptional quality of their products. You will find many of those coins
pictured on this website.
