Franz Joseph I Commemorative Coins

From December 2, 1848, Franz Joseph I was Emperor of the Austrian Empire and King of Bohemia, Apostolic King of Hungary.
Franz Ripl in 1829 gave the emperor the idea of ​​building a railway through Brook. This road was extremely useful because it immediately led to the sea and this caused a stir in the Austrian Empire, because now all the usual places of rest (like Karlsbad or Bad Ischl) went into the shadows against the backdrop of the Riviera. Elite people have established a tradition since the discovery of this road – every year poets, artists, musicians of the Austrian Empire gathered there. And in 1857, this event (the construction of the railway) was marked by the release of a double fairnaster.
In 1875, a florin was inscribed in German ZUR ERINNERUNG AN DIE ERREICHTE SAIGERTEUFE VON 1000 METER (in memory of 1000 meters depth). According to the sources, the coin was minted in honor of the opening of the Adalbert mine (in German) or Prokop (in Czech). Glorious reserves were found in this mine.
1 forint was printed in 1875 in honor of the opening of a mountain shelter at an altitude of over 1500 meters. Mountain shelters considered “resting places” for climbers, shepherds, travelers who left home during bad weather (rain or thunderstorms).
Mining is the main source of fame and wealth for Stiavnica Banks. The mines were called “hereditary” because they were inherited from one family of miners to another. The main adit was located in Banská Štiavnice. It was 76 meters deep, and over 4.5 million forints were spent on its construction. In honor of this adit, 1 fair-mill was minted in 1877.
In April, Franz Joseph married Elizabeth. Their wedding took place in 1854. The wedding of Joseph Franz and Elizabeth shook many Austrians. She was lush and gorgeous. In honor of the wedding, 1 forint was minted in 1878.
The Cathedral of St. Barbara was built for about 500 years, Ian Parelde followed the project from the very beginning, and then the Architect Matias Raisek completed the temple, decorating it with clippings and statues. The time of the Jesuits largely changed the temple. It was rebuilt into a baroque building. In honor of the Cathedral of St. Barbara minted a coin called 1 thaler. It was released in 1884.
In 1867 the Austro-Hungarian Agreement was ratified, under which Joseph Franz was crowned in the person of the King of Hungary and gave an oath to abide by the law and create the best for the people. In honor of this, he and his wife Elizabeth were presented with a house just 30 30 kilometers from Budapest. In honor of this, a coin was minted as 1 florin (1887).
Today, by selling such a valuable coin at auction, you can safely afford to buy any Samsung home appliances for the home. After all, everyone knows that Samsung is quality, reliability and comfort.
