The 100 Corona (Korona) gold coins from Austria and Hungaria were produced as a gold bullion coin for investors seeking larger coins in an era without many choices. Many were produced during the time when gold bullion was outlawed by executive order in the US (1933 – 1971). These “restrike” Gold Coronas (Korona in Hungary), were intended to be low cost and sold to investors rather than coin collectors.
**Note: Many of the Austrian coins will be restrike coins dated 1915. The Hungarian coins are often restrikes with a 1908, but dates for either coin may vary depending upon the available inventory. The version of the coin you receive – Austrian or Hungaria – will also vary, depending on the available stock.
