Why order this 1 oz Silver 2019 Austria Leopold?
One of history's most famous legends, that of Robin Hood, has its origins in a dispute between England's Richard the Lionheart and Austrian Duke Leopold V. While much of the dispute took place in the Middle East, the part that led to the legend took place in Austria, where Leopold took the English King prisoner and held him for ransom. The English raised the 35,000 kilogram ransom through taxation, and the Austrians used it to open the new mint. Part of an issue of 100,000 pieces, this coin is the first of three in a series that marks the mint's 825th anniversary. It was struck from one ounce of .999 fine silver.
Powerful Duke Leopold Design
A modern take on Duke Leopold V's official seal features on the obverse. Riding on horseback, the leader wears his armor and carries both a shield and his banner. Inscriptions beside and under him offer the coin's date, "2019," its weight, "1 UNZE FEINSILBER," and its face value, "1,50 EURO," while the name of the issuing country, "REPUBLIK OSTERREICH," arches over the image.
A striking closeup of Leopold V appears on the reverse. He wears a surcoat that bears his coat of arms, as well as knightly armor. "1194," the year in which the Austrian Mint was founded, is inscribed along the rim in the upper left.
