Collectible coins of Austria with a face value of 3 euro

 

In    2016, the Austrian Mint began minting new colored coins with a face value of 3 euro. A notable feature of these coins is that they have a special coating glowing in the dark. All coins are made of copper-nickel alloy (CuNi 25).

   The first series of coins in Austria with a face value of 3 euro was the series "Colorful Animals" issued from 2016 to 2019 inclusive. The series includes 12 coins, which depict various animals inhabiting our planet. Coins minted with a maximum circulation of 50,000 units.

   It is worth noting that the obverse of all the coins of the Colorful Animals series is the same and it depicts 12 animals in the central part - a bat, tiger, crocodile, kingfish, wolf, parrot, shark, owl, frog, turtle, otter and cancer. Around the composition is the name of the state "REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH" and the face value "3 EURO."

Since    2019, Austria began issuing 3 euro coins from the second series, which is called "Supersaurs" and is dedicated to prehistoric animals that lived on the planet millions of years ago.
