Description

5 euro Silver coin in coincard dedicated to a charming representation of a Lion in a book dating back to Middle Ages, Brilliant Uncircolated.
This charming, almost feminine representation of a lion was found on the cover of the oldest book among the millions that make up the impressive collection of the Austrian National Library.
It goes back about 650 years, deep into the Middle Ages, where people came across the lustrous head of a lion and its mischievous grin framed by a handsome flowing mane. The nine-sided coin's obverse shows the coats of arms of the nine federal provinces of Austria.
