The Hungarian twenty Korona Gold Coin was first minted in 1892 and has quite a celebrated history. With a .900 fineness in actual gold content of .1960 Troy oz., the coin was produced in 1848 to commemorate the crowning of Emperor Francis Joseph the first of Austria. Emperor Franz Joseph the 1st brought back together Hungry in Austria as an empire in 1867, but his history is riddled with unlucky incidents and crises. Bro Maximilian was executed in 1867 by Mexican firing squad, his child Rudolf died in 1889 after committing suicide, and Karl Ludwig, his bro died in 1896. Italian anarchists murdered his other half in 1898. His nephew, Franz Ferdinand is most celebrated for his execution in Sarajevo in 1914, which for all intentions and purposes, propelled the world into the Great War.
Hungarian gold coins were minted with the same denomination as Austrian coins and the Hungarian 20 korona, the most famous of Hungarian coins, offers a likeness of Emperor Francis Joseph facing right.
Hungarian gold coins offer high collector, investor price, the most wanted being minted between 1879 and 1908. The popular 1893 Hungarian ten Korona and the 1908 Hungarian a hundred Korona re-strike are tops.
