Investing in gold has clear advantages: it comes with abiding intrinsic value, it serves as a hedge against inflation, it can be used as a bartering tool when times get tough and the precious metal is an inventive, shrewd diversification strategy.

Not only does the Austrian Gold Corona make a great investment in precious metals, but it is a thoughtful gift and a valuable addition to any collection. Indeed, each 20 Corona is a piece of memorabilia from the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the calamitous First World War.
Minted in Austria from 1892 – 1916, the obverse of the Gold 20 Corona features the right-facing profile of Emperor Franz Joseph I, who reigned over much of Central and Eastern Europe for nearly 70 years. The reverse of each 20 Corona bears the Austrian Coat of Arms across the breast of a crowned, double-headed eagle.
Also called the Krone (in Austria) or Korona (in Hungary), the gold coin was born when the Austro-Hungarian Empire adopted the gold standard in 1892. The Corona soon became the region’s official form of currency, and Gold 20 Coronas circulated in modern-day Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and beyond, until the dissolution of the empire.
