Austria chose to produce a series of coins illustrating flowers, architecture and famous people from its history. The designs were chosen by a national panel and public opinion poll. All designs are by the hand of Josef Kaiser and they include the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint. The coins have a unique design for each denomination, with a common theme for each of the three series of coins.
The coins feature the gentian, the edelweiss, the primrose (flowers of the Austrian Alps), St Stephen's Cathedral, the Belvedere Palace, the Secession Building, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Bertha von Suttner
