This release is dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the return of one of Austria’s most anticipated cultural events of the year: the Vienna Opera Ball, though its origins span much farther back in the country’s history.

The Opera Ball has existed since 1814 when it was first hosted by the Imperial Court of the Habsburg dynasty. The outbreak of the Second World War and the subsequent adversity faced by war-torn Vienna forced a 17-year hiatus upon the event. The Opera Ball was re-established in 1956 in its original home, the newly re-opened Vienna State Opera, where it has remained ever since.

The obverse features a young man preparing to kiss the hand of a debutante in front of opera house. The lady carries pink flowers that serve as a colorful accent to the otherwise silver face of the coin. Inscribed within this design are REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH, WEINER OPERNBALL, 2016, and the coin’s denomination, 20 EURO.

The reverse bears an illustration of couples arriving on the dance floor to open the ball with a ceremonial waltz. Many more onlookers can be seen around the floor and in the boxes overlooking the event.

Each coin comes in an attractive box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
