Excellent designs. Communists, capitalists, democrats, all agree on one thing: the desirability of industrialisation. Apart from Pol Pot, nominally a communist too, who abolished money and drove everyone back to the land: Year Zero.

Not a coin, but a counter, showing a teacher with a counting table and an alphabet book. Reading, writing, 'rithmetic...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Why am I not surprised? 8) Back to "those" occupations, here is a series (images: muenzenfreund.net) of four Austrian silver 500 schilling collector coins, issued in 1997/98. They depict, from left to right, a blacksmith, a stonemason, a printer and a goldsmith.

Found it!  Der Goldschmied (The Goldsmith), 22.2000g, 37mm, 0.9250 Silver.

They were struck in three finishes:

Normal Finish Mintage 125 thousand
Special Uncirculated (Handgehoben) Mintage 17 thousand
Proof Mintage 35 thousand (Polierte Platte)

Mine is the first type.
If I remember correctly you could pick them up at the bank.

Austria also issued a 100 ATS with a Salt miner on it.


I think I actually have one of those pesky 500ATS.  Goldsmith, I think, but I haven't looked at that coin in years. Will see if I can find it.Dale

I think you are quite right, but KM says "Man working field".
