Austria 10 and 20 Heller 1892 to 1916
I guess the Austrian's figured that there was no reason to put their country's name on their coins. After all, who could miss that double-headed eagle? (Actually, the Russians and some old German coins have the two-headed eagle as well.)
Both 10 and 20 heller coins have similar patterns. Of course the 20 hellers have a big 20 on the back.
The 10 heller coins are worth only a small amount unless you have the *good date* of 1892. An 1892 10 heller catalogs for $400 US dollars in average circulated condition. All other dates don't hold a candle to the 1892, as follows:
worn: $1 catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $8
Oak leaves replaced the 'flowing apple' design around the 10 after 1911. The values above are catalog values. Use our Terminology page to understand how to obtain actual values from catalog values.
For 20 heller pieces, the values are about the same, except the catalog value rises toward $12 in fully uncirculated condition and the 1892 date is worth about one-half the 10 heller value cited above. A 1914 20 heller is a *better date* coin worth about $25 in average circulated condition.
