Austria 30 Kreuzer (with diamond)  1742 to 1773
Austria 30 Kreuzer (with diamond) 1742 to 1773

The diamond on the front and back of these grand old 30 kreuzer coins make them different than most Austrian coins of the period. The diamond appears only on the 30 kreuzers of Maria Theresa, Joseph II, and Franz I. The Byzantine double-headed eagle appears on all these coins.

The coin in our picture comes from Beast Coins in New Berlin, Wisconsin USA, and CoinQuest thanks them for use of their great coin photo.

Requester description: 1749 Very similar to the Austrian Ducaton, except a '30' denomination. Date is 1749. Where the 1750 Ducation has a free-standing bust on the face, this coin's bust is framed by a diamond. Similar bust otherwise. On the Reverse, a different coat d'arms is printed, also with diamond frame. FACE INSCRIPTION: FRANC D.GR.IS.A GE.IER.R LO.B.M.H.D REVERSE INSCRIPTION: INTE DOMINE SPERAVI 1749 The denomination (30)is directly below bust on FACE side. I've searched online for days for this specific coin, without success. Can you help? I have pictures that I can supply. Many Thanks for any help ! 30
