The 10 kronen coin was issued by the Principality of Liechtenstein in 1900, during the reign of Prince Johann II (John II). Before then, an unissued pattern coin of the denomination was struck in 1898.

HistoryEdit

The Austrian Mint in Vienna minted 35 gold 10 krone pattern coins in 1898. These coins are very similar in design those struck two years later, in 1900.

The Principality of Liechtenstein issued the 10 krone coin in 1900. This coin is composed of .900 fine gold (90% gold, 10% copper), weighs approximately 3.3875 grams, and measures 19 millimeters in diameter and 0.9 millimeters in thickness. A left-facing effigy of Prince Johann II is featured on the obverse, accompanied by the caption "JOHANN II • FÜRST VON LIECHTENSTEIN" ("Johann II, Prince of Liechtenstein"). A simplified coat of arms of Liechtenstein is featured on the reverse inside a wreath. The value, inscribed as "10 KR", is separated by the arms and superimposed over portions of the wreath. At the bottom of the coin is the year, the first two digits of the date (19) divided from the last two (00) by the wreath. In total, only about 1500 examples were produced at the Austrian Mint.
