5 euro – 250 Years Vienna Zoo

Series: Austria – Silver 5 euro coins

One is struck from the first by this nine sided coin, symbolic for the nine federal provinces of Austria. Their coats-of arms encircle the denomination "5" with the inscription "Republik Österreich" and "Euro". The reverse shows the Emperor's Pavilion surrounded by a variety of animals from the zoo. The dates "1752-2002" refer to the anniversary and, of course, date the coin itself.
