Starting in the past, our odyssey through the 170-year history of Austrian rail has illustrated the important role the country has played in the development of the railway. As the sixth and final 20 euro silver coin in the series shows, it will continue to do so in the future.
As high-speed rail networks continue to extend around Europe, Railjet is Austria’s very own contribution. Designed to offer passengers an entirely new transport experience in speed, comfort, design and service, the number of Railjet network connections was doubled in 2009 and will continue do so in years to come. The coin’s obverse shows the state-of-the-art express train speeding out of a tunnel beneath overhead cables and above “Republic of Austria” and the year of issue (2009). The reverse provides a view of a freight yard containing numerous freight cars and containers. In the foreground stands an electric shunting type 1063 engine.
Minted to a maximum of 50,000 pieces in Proof quality only, each coin comes in an attractive case with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
