Full Description

The word Ducat is derived from the latin word 'ducatus' which means 'relating to a duke'. The historical Austrian Ducats were initially used in European countries like Sweden, Russia and Holland. These were issued by Austria in 1612 and were regular till 1914. These are, without doubt, one of the most highest purity gold coins.
