Austria 5 Schilling 1960 to Date
These coins have been minted in Austria since 1960. In 1968 they switched composition from 64 percent silver to copper nickel, so:
COINS BEFORE 1968: silver value
COINS AFTER 1968: face value (5 schillings in Austria)
If you have a silver coin, the catalogs say that it contains 0.107 troy ounces of pure silver. Web sites like kitco.com say that the price of silver at the time of this writing is $17 US dollars per troy ounce. That makes your coin worth 0.107 x $17 = $1.82. The price of silver changes every day, so be sure to look it up.
