Austria will release a €5 coin

Postby Miguel.mateo » 16 Dec 2008, 10:50

The coin is named "200th Anniversary of the Death of Joseph Haydn".

The reverse of the coin shows a portrait of the famous composer in profile. Across his chest stretches a bar of his music with the date “2009”, while to the right there are two violins with his name “Joseph Haydn” and the dates of his life (1732–1809). The official side of the nine-sided coin displays the shields of the nine Federal Provinces of Austria and the denomination of 5 euros.

Only the 1 cent to 2 euro coins and the 2 euro commemorative coins can be used in any euro country.
All other coins are only accepted in the issuing countries. So this coin can be used in Austria only.
