1915 Austria Gold 1 Ducat Coin .1106 oz. AGW
This is an official restrike of the 1915 Austria Gold 1 Ducat Coin, which contains a little more than 1/10th of an ounce of gold, or more precisely .1106 ounces in actual gold weight. It is a popular gold bullion coin because of its low premium and beautiful classic design.
The Austrian Mint, which has roots dating to the 12th century, has been minting coins continuously in the same location for the past 800 years. That experience plus the Austrian dedication to quality and detail has resulted in the mint having a reputation as one of the world’s top mints.
An added benefit of that rich experience is that the mint continues to issue official restrikes of some of the most popular classic Austrian gold coins that pre-date the modern Austrian Republic.
This 1 Ducat Gold coin is one of those coins. It was originally produced for trade between the Kingdom of Austria and then the Austro-Hungarian Empire and its neighbors during the period when Emperor Franz Joseph I reigned in Austria (from 1848 until 1866) and his successors, including Archduke Franz Ferdinand, who reigned until he was assassinated in 1914, an event which led to the start of World War I.
Franz Joseph I is depicted on the coin’s obverse, while the reverse shows the classic double-headed Austrian eagle that was the Austrian coat of arms at the time.
