10 Hungarian Corona Gold 1892-1915
The historic Hungarian 10 Korona gold coins were minted between 1892 and 1915. Each 10 Korona coin contains .0980 ounces of gold, weighs 3.3875 grams, and is 18.9 millimeters in diameter.
Depicted in detailed profile on the obverse above the mintage date is Franz Joseph I, who was Emperor of Austria, King of Bohemia, and Apostolic King of Hungary from 1848 to 1916. Early in his reign, Emperor Franz Joseph survived an assassination attempt and went on to build Austria-Hungary into Europe's second largest country geographically (after the Russian Empire), and the third most populous (after Russia and the German Empire). The reverse displays "Kingdom of Hungary" in Hungarian along with the 10 Korona denomination and a crowned shield with angel supporters.
