One of the most popular gold coin denominations on the European continent in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was based on the 20 Franc gold coin developed by the French Empire under Napoleon. While some nations issued their own 20 Franc denominations, others used the weight and purity standards to issue their own version of the popular coin. For the Austrians, this was the 20 Corona gold coin. Provident Metals now offers the 20 Austrian 20 Corona Gold Coin for purchase online.

1915 Austrian 20 Corona Gold Coins feature the right-profile portrait of Emperor Franz Joseph I. He remains the third-longest reigning European monarch in the history of the continent. He was the Emperor of the Austrian Empire from 1848 until its merge with the Kingdom of Hungary, at which point he held dual titles as the Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Austrian 20 Corona Gold Coins bear the Imperial crest of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The double-headed, crowned eagle is based on the coat of arms for the Hapsburg Dynasty, the founding family of the Austrian Empire. The eagle bears the coat of arms of the empire on its chest with a sword in one talon and a globe in the other.
The Austro-Hungarian Empire adopted the gold standard in 1892 and began issuing its Corona Gold coins with a standardized weight and .900 gold content across various denominations that included 20, 40, and 100 Corona. The original Austrian 20 Corona Gold Coins were produced from 1909 to 1916. These 1915 Austrian 20 Corona Gold Coins are actually restrikes produced by the Austrian Mint in the 1970s with a 1915 date mark on the reverse.
