Why purchase this 2019 Austrian 1 oz Silver Leopold?

The Austrian Mint is celebrating its 825th anniversary in 2019 with a three coin set issued to tell the story of its foundation. Duke Leopold V took English King Henry V prisoner as the latter was returning from a Crusade. Leopold demanded a ransom of 35,000 kilograms of silver, which was then used to open the Austrian Mint. The English government raised the ransom through excessive taxation, which led to the legend of Robin Hood. Struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver, this coin is part of a mintage of 100,000 pieces.

Striking Leopold V Design

"REPUBLIK OSTERREICH," the name of the issuing country in German, arches over a modern rendering of Duke Leopold V's official seal on the obverse. The leader is depicted riding on horseback in left-side profile. He bears his banner and his shield. Essential information about the coin, including its face value, "1,50 EURO," the date, "2019," and its weight, "1 UNZE FEINSILBER," are inscribed on the bottom half of this face.

Leopold wields his sword with both hands while facing the holder on the reverse. He is dressed in his armor and wears a surcoat, which bears his coat of arms. Along the rim in the upper left is the date "1194," the year in which the Austrian Mint was founded.

Nearly Perfect MS69 FR with Austria Label
