Austria Wedding Anniversary 2 Gulden  1879
Austria Wedding Anniversary 2 Gulden 1879

This is actually a coin, with denomination 2 gulden (same as 2 florin) and 0.714 troy ounces silver. It was struck to celebrate the 25th wedding anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth. Their co-joined busts are on the obverse. It is listed as an 'unusual coin' because normal 2 florin have a different pattern.

With its 'unusual' status the coin is somewhat rare and that pushes prices up. Approximately:

worn: $50 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $80
well preserved: $150
fully uncirculated: $250

As always on CoinQuest, these are catalog values and actual buy and sell values are different. See our Important Terminology page to learn about the relationships between catalog, buy, and sell prices.

Coin: 20191 , Genre: Central Europe North South

Requester description: Well you have the happy couple on one side and on the other and on the other side it looks like a seated woman(like those peruvian sols). It's about the same size of a 2 florin, interchangeable or just a medal? N/A? FRANC.IOS.I.D.G.AVSTR.IMP.ET.HVNG.REX.AP.
