One of the fundamental attractions to investing in gold is its intrinsic value. Indeed, the precious metal has been a store of value and means of barter for thousands of years–and the gold you purchase today will be valuable for centuries to come. Furthermore, many gold coins are deeply embedded in the history of a culture or era, making them highly valuable to collectors as well.
A prime example is the Austrian 100 Corona Gold Coin, now available at Provident Metals. Each containing .9802 Troy Ounces of Pure Gold. A great choice for maximizing the value of your investment, each coin will arrive in AU Condition or Better (dates of our choice).
Minted in Austria and Hungary from 1908 – 1914, the obverse of each Gold 100 Corona features a portrait of Franz Joseph, hailed as the Emperor of Austria, King of Bohemia, Croatia, Galicia and Lodomeria, Apostolic King of Hungary and Grand Duke of Cracow from 1848 – 1916. (Interestingly, Franz Joseph was also the brother of Mexican Emperor Maximilian and the Uncle of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, whose assassination triggered the First World War.) The reverse of each coin features the Middle Coat of Arms.
The history of the 100 Corona began in 1892, when the short-lived Austro-Hungarian Empire adopted the gold standard. At that time, the empire began issuing the krone (or korona) as its official form of currency. As part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the krone circulated in what is now Austria, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and portions of Serbia, Romania, Italy, Montenegro, Poland and Ukraine.

" Great coin that has a low mark up. Wish I could get something other than re-strikes to put in my collection. Hoping Provident will send me a 1908 version! Plan on buying several more!"

" This is a fun coin to own while still investing in gold. The premium over melt is so low that it almost is insignificant. This is my first order from Provident but it will not be my last. Will definitely do business again."

" Low premium on this excellent coin. Received 2 with no blemishes and appeared to be recent restrikes. A good investment. Great service from Provident."
