A standard denomination of coinage in the Austro-Hungarian empire from 1892 to 1916 was the gold Corona. Though the most used was the 20 Corona coin, there was also a ten Corona coin and, briefly, a 100 Corona. The original 100 Corona gold coin was issued only in the early 20th century, beginning in 1908 to mark the 60th anniversary of Franz Joseph I as Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary. There are two such gold Corona coins in the upcoming Custom Antique Furnishings and Decorative Accessories sale, presented by Nadeau’s Auction Gallery.
