Emperor Franz Joseph I.
  • Type Marschall
In 1909, the image of the emperor on coins was changed. The head is now bare, no longer adorned by a laurel wreath. As a curiosity the 10-Kronen gold coin exists in two variants. The first variant with the narrower head was originally designed by Rudolf Marshall for the commemorative coins od 1908. The second version was designed by medalist Stefan Schwartz. He had such a good reputation as an artist, that he was allowed to sign the coin with his name below the head of the emperor.
