  • Product description

    Originally a silver-based currency dating from the 19th century, the Gold Florin (also called Gold Gulden) was issued to circulate freely within the Latin Monetary Union, comprising France, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland. Austria, however, struck its very own impressive 4 and 8 Florin coins in gold up until 1892. Engraved on the coin's reverse, 1892 was the year that Florin (Gulden) were eventually replaced by Coronas. The Latin Monetary Union, on the other hand, lasted until the run up to the First World War. Its member countries had agreed to issue coins of the same weight, alloy, size and equivalent value. Austria signed a preliminary agreement in 1867 but failed to achieve the currency criterion for membership.
