The 100 frank coin was a commemorative coin issued by the Principality of Liechtenstein in 1952. It commemorates the marriage of Prince Franz Joseph II of Liechtenstein and Georgina (Gina) von Wilczek, which took place in Vaduz on March 7, 1943.

The coin is composed of .900 fine gold (90% gold, 10% copper), weighs 32.258 grams, and measures 36 millimeters in diameter. A left-facing effigy of Franz Joseph II is displayed in the foreground of the obverse, and behind him, in the midground, is an image of Princess Gina facing the same direction. Surrounding both likenesses is an inscription reading "FRANZ • JOSEF • II • UND • GINA • VON • LIECHTENSTEIN" and the year, both written along the coin's edge. To the right of Franz Joseph's portrait is the text "GRIENAUER", which signifies that the coin was designed by Austrian sculptor Edwin Grienauer. A simplified version of the coat of arms of Liechtenstein is depicted on the reverse, accompanied by the state title of the country (FÜRSTENTUM LIECHTENSTEIN) and the coin's value. Only 4000 examples were struck.
