Austria, 10 groschen, 1964

It’s just like the coin from August 11th, but 12 years younger.

Austria, 10 groschen, 1964 (KM #2878)

The first thing I think of when I hear “1964” is, of course, Goldfinger. The Tokyo Olympics also come to mind. There’s also something relevant about Barry Goldwater and the Beatles, too.
