Austrian Gold CoronaThe Austrian Gold Corona was first issued between the years of 1908 and 1914, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the reign of the Austrian Emperor, Franz Josef I. It was a very large gold coin often referred to as the One Hundred Corona.

Official restrikes of the Austrian 100 Corona gold coins were issued after the death of Franz Josef in 1916.  A restrike is simply a coin that was originally minted for circulation that has been officially reproduced. The official restrikes of the gold Corona bear the date of 1915 and were issued as commemorative pieces.

The 100 Korona Gold Coins are what is known as low-premium gold bullion coins.

A low-premium gold bullion coin is a bullion coin that is sold at a very low premium over the intrinsic gold value of the coin.

Since the Gold Austrian Corona coins are no longer being minted, they are not promoted or advertised in any manner. This is the reason for their low premium over the spot price of gold.

Other examples of low-premium gold bullion coins include:

The Austrian 100 Corona gold coins will typically sell between five to fifteen percent above the current spot price of gold. You can often find the Austrian Gold Corona selling on online auction sites at or around spot gold plus five percent.
