The obverse of the 100 Korona Hungarian Gold Coin depicts Franz Joseph I, who reigned as Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from 1848 to 1916. The Hungarian Korona design portrays Franz Joseph I holding a scepter in his right hand and a crowned sphere in his left hand. The coin’s date mark of 1908 is also featured on this side.
On the reverse, the Hungary 100 Korona Gold Coin showcases the Hungarian coat of arms. This emblem includes a crowned shield supported on either side by angels. Notably, the engravings on both sides of the coin are in Hungarian, reflecting Hungary’s distinct linguistic identity rather than Austria’s native German tongue.
All 1908 Hungarian 100 Korona Gold Coins were minted by the Austrian Mint, one of Europe’s oldest operating mint facilities, dating back to its opening in 1194 during the reign of Duke Leopold V. Secure your piece of Hungarian history with these unique and limited restrike coins.
