Austria, 1 schilling, 1960

Bonus coin #3…

Austria, 1 schilling, 1960 (KM #2886)

The Austrians minted this coin continuously between 1959 and 2001. It is a simple design, with clean lines. It is not to be confused with the old British shilling (pre-decimal 1/20th of a pound). I do not know of any historical relationship between Britain and Austria that would have them pick the same name for their coin. As with almost all pre-euro coinage, this schilling is now worthless.
