5 euro Silver coin dedicated to the symbol of Easter, the Easter Bunny, Brilliant Uncirculated.
Celebrating both Easter and the 300th anniversary of the manufacture of porcelain in Vienna, this Easter Bunny coin features a depiction of a very special rabbit.
Designed by ceramicist and sculptor Michael Powolny (1871-1954) around 1930, it is one of the most charming pieces ever produced by Vienna’s famous Augarten Porcelain Manufactory.
Originating in Germany during the Renaissance, the “Osterhase” (literally the Easter hare) was a folkloric figure among the followers of Martin Luther that judged whether children were behaving correctly at the beginning of Eastertide. Today the Easter Bunny is a far less judgmental creature who brings eggs for all children irrespective of their behaviour.
