The Crusades Come Alive For the 825th Anniversary of the Austria Mint
2019 marks the 825th anniversary of the Austria Mint, and the occasion is being celebrated with a brand-new series featuring important sites and figures from the time of the Crusades. This first release depicts the official seal and a heroic depiction of Duke Leopold V of Austria, who in 1191 got into an argument with King Richard “The Lionheart” of England, resulting in Richard being taken hostage. The silver ransom paid for Richard’s return inspired the legend of Robin Hood and founded the stronghold of Weiner Neustadt, both of which will be featured on future releases in the series. In 1194, that silver also funded the creation of the original Austria Mint in Vienna. You can secure this coin in a special themed blister pack with a German-language Knights’ Tales Collector Album, filled with facts, details and illustrations.
