1892 Austrian 4 Florins 10 Francs
All 1892 dated Austrian gold 4 Florins 10 Francs are Austrian Mint official restrikes, issued partially as commemoratives, and partly as a gold bullion coin.
The dual denomination 4 Florins 10 Francs is one of the many varied denominations of gold coin which Austria has produced in its long history. Between 1870 and 1892 Austria produced two different coin types, each of which carried face values in two different monetary systems, this is because these coins were "trade coinage" intended for international use as bullion coins. These types were the 20 francs / 8 florins which we feature on this page, and its sibling the 10 francs / 4 florins.
4 Florins 10 Francs
These were issued between 1870 and 1891, but with official restrikes dated 1892 being issued indefinitely. All the pre 1892 issues tend therefore to be of more interest to collectors, although there is nothing wrong with finding space for the 1892 restrikes in any collection.
