Austria - Euro Coin Sets

Austria Started Using The Euro on January 1st 2002:

On new year's day 2002, Austria, like the other 11 members of the Eurozone, started using Euro notes and Euro coins for cash transactions. Within a few months, the old coins and banknotes in Schillings have been withdrawn. We have uncirculated sets of Euro coins from each of the twelve member countries in stock now for immediate delivery.

Packaging & Presentation:
We have uncirculated mint sets of coins from all 12 Euro zone countries in stock now for immediate delivery. We have information about official issue mint or proof sets. All of the countries will issue uncirculated sets, but many will not issue proof sets. Our own sets are packaged in an attractive plastic case allowing the coins to be viewed from both sides. We show a photograph of the folder used for the official Austrian Mint set.
