Commemorative issue

"Bundesländer" Series - Carinthia

Obverse

The superb design by Austrian Mint award-winning designer Thomas Pesendorfer depicts this ancient art being practiced in the grounds of medieval Landskron Castle near Villach, Carinthia’s second largest city.

Lettering: KÄRNTEN KOROŠKA

Engraver: Helmut Andexlinger

Helmut Andexlinger (1973, Haslach an der Mühl, Upper Austria) is an Austrian engraver and coin designer.

Reverse

Sharing a border with Slovenia in the south of the country, Carinthia is home to numerous bilingual schools, which is why ten-year-old Philip Ogris chose to place the name of his home province in both German and Slovenian at the bottom of his competition-winning design on the coin’s reverse. Ibexes, the legendary Lindwurm of Klagenfurt and the crystal-clear waters of Lake Wörthersee also make an appearance, while the coin’s obverse depicts an example of Carinthia’s intangible cultural heritage, as recognised by UNESCO, in the shape of falconry.
