Comments

Date of issue: 06.05.2015

"Signed on 15 May 1955, the Austria State Treaty brought an end to the occupation of the country in the aftermath of the Second World War and re-established Austria as an independent and democratic sovereign state. The treaty also paved the way for the foundation of the Austrian Armed Forces later the same year. The S-70 Black Hawk military transport helicopter, shown carrying out a rescue operation on the coin’s reverse, is symbolic of the vital role those forces play in protecting and assisting citizens, as is the soldier on a peacekeeping mission alongside the slogan ‘Schutz und Hilfe’ (protection and assistance) on the right of the coin. The coin’s obverse shows the coats of arms of the nine federal provinces of Austria."
