This is the third issue in a four-coin series celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Empress Maria Theresa, the only female ruler of the Habsburg Empire and the most fascinating female figure in Austrian history.

The Empress Maria Theresa series is based on the four cardinal virtues, Courage, Justice, Clemency and Prudence, which drove the imposing Empress to steer the Habsburg Empire on a highly successful course for 40 years, while managing to give birth to 16 children. Featuring original motifs taken from medals issued during Maria Theresa’s reign (1740-1780), the series combines the four cardinal virtues with four different portraits that show the Empress as a young woman, a wife, a widow and a mother.

The obverse features Maria Theresa wearing a widow’s veil. Empress Maria Theresa donned the veil following the sudden death of her beloved husband, Francis I, in 1765. Devastated by the death of Francis, Maria Theresa dressed in mourning for the rest of her life and even had the room in which he died, in the Hofburg in Innsbruck, converted into a chapel. The portrait of Maria Theresa wearing a veil on the coin’s obverse is from a relieff by Anton Guillemard (1747-1812), while the coin’s reverse shows an allegorical representation of Clemency in which a female figure offers her hand to a fallen soldier.

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