Certainly not "overloaded", design wise. :)  "First Republic" is not right though - that ended in 1934. Your coin was issued by the Austrofascist regime or Ständestaat (1934-38). The emblem is different from that of the republic, and the coin does not say "Republik" any more ...

Thank you christian for the remark, I thought the first republic covered the period (1925-1938).
