The E-Sylum: Volume 4, Number 5, January 28, 2001, Article 6


Peter Gaspar writes:

"I would like to learn more about the background for the Austrian coinage of the 1920's, particularly the brief (1923, 1924) coinage of 20 and 100 Kronen gold pieces on the old standard, and the introduction of the new Schilling and the monetary role, if any, played by the 25 and 100 Schiilling gold pieces of the period up to the Anschluss.

I only have at my disposal the brief (but excellent) monograph on general Austrian monetary history of August Loehr published in 1946. The standard catalogs for modern Austria by Miller zu Eichholz, Loehr and Holzmaier and by Jaeckel (I'm sorry about the spelling errors, but I am away from my library) don't help much. I would really appreciate leads to journal references or more extensive monographs on the monetary history of Austria of the 1918 to 1938 period. I read German, French, and Hungarian fairly well, so these need not be in English."
