The now defunct commemorative 100 Schilling coins of Austria always showed 10 shields or coats of arms on the obverse, to represent the nine states of Austria and the country itself.

The major difference between those two Austrian types is the presence (or not) of the federal CoA. The early commems of the Second Republic, issued between 1955 and mid-1964, had the shields of the nine states only. Between mid-1964 and 1988 they used the nine plus the federal eagle. (Austria used a few different obverse designs for its commems too.) In 1996 the circle of nine state shields was introduced again - first for the bimetallic 50 schilling coins, now for the 5 euro coins.
