Austria 5, 10, and 20 Kreuzer 1802 to 1835

Franz (Franciscus) II of Austria minted these coins in 5, 10, and 20 kreuzer denominations between 1802 and 1835. The denomination appears in the apple-shaped scrollwork at the bottom of the side with the double-headed eagle. The alloy is only about 50 percent silver. The total silver content is:

5 KREUZER, 1815 to 1835: 0.033 troy ounces silver
10 KREUZER, 1809 to 1835: 0.063 ounces silver
20 KREUZER, 1802 to 1835: 0.125 ounces silver
