Austrian Mint Release Their Coin Program For 2013!

We are pleased to announce that the Austrian Mint has released their official coin program for 2013! Please see the information about the program below as supplied by the Austrian Mint. Euro Collections Internation, as official distributor for the Austrian Mint, is very excited about the coins on offer next year and we look forward to offering them to you.

From The Austrian Mint:
Our new programme traditionally gets underway with a 5 euro New Year coin. Celebrating the Viennese Waltz, the 2013 coin will be issued on 12 December 2012, together with the 2013 Euro Coin Set and the 2013 Baby Euro Coin Set – both in Special Uncirculated quality.

The first piece actually issued in 2013 will be the 25 euro silver niobium coin. The subject of the coin is Tunnelling, which is illustrated in brilliant ice blue niobium.

The programme continues in February in the shape of the The Expectation, the second edition of our Klimt and his Women 50 euro gold coin series, which features a scene from the famous Stoclet Frieze.

The theme of the 2013 European Silver programme is European Writers. Available from March, the Austrian 20 euro silver coin celebrates the great writer Stefan Zweig and his famous Chess Story.

A brand new series awaits us in April. Entitled Prehistoric Life, the five-coin series, which continues until 2015, will bring to life the ancient landmass that once made up modern-day Austria. Each coin will be inspired by a geological period and its typical life forms, such as Trias depicting life in the water in April, and Jura depicting life in the air in September.

Also dedicated to water, a 5 euro coin will be issued in June celebrating Austria as a Land of Water, in conjunction with the United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation and the International Decade for Action, “Water - Source of Life”.

Our 10 euro Federal Provinces series continues with a Lower Austria coin in May and a Vorarlberg coin in October; the former is the country’s largest province, the latter its most westerly. Our Proof quality Euro Coin Set is also on our schedule in October.

The first coin in our new five-part Austrian Wildlife series of 100 euro gold coins, which pays homage to Austria’s native flora and fauna, marks the end of our 2013 programme.

As you can see 2013 is going to be an exciting year at the mint and for collectors. Stay tuned to ECI through our Facebook page, Twitter or here at Numismatters for up-to-date information as each new coin is released!
