Austria Dr. Theodor Billroth Commemorative 2 Schilling  1929
Austria Dr. Theodor Billroth Commemorative 2 Schilling 1929

Dr. Theodor Billroth was a prominent abdominal surgeon who lived in 19th century Austria, and the year of 1929 would have been his 100th birthday if he had still been alive. To commemorate the occasion, these pretty silver coins were minted.

Not too many were made, and the coins can be tough to find in top condition. This helps to keep the catalog values up where they are:

worn: $6
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $18
fully uncirculated: $35

The coin in our image was sold by the auction company Stack's for $60 in a 2008 auction. This shows that collectors are willing to pay much more than the catalog value for an extremely attractive coin such as this one. The spiffy golden and blue toning make this coin a real beauty! CoinQuest thanks Stack's for use of their coin photo.

Coins with damage or tainted eye appeal will be worth much less than the values noted above. Be sure to check out our Important Terminology page found on the top left in order to properly interpret these catalog values.

Coin: 16521 , Genre: Central Europe North South
