Can anyone identify the country and unit of currency?

3 posts in this topic

I've been going through a bunch of coins that I bought at a garage sale, and I'm unsure of the country of origin of some of them. In particular, there are seven that have the same two-headed eagle(?) on the obverse. However, only one of them has an inscription on it. One dated 1858 has the inscription, K K OESTERREICHISCHE SCHEIDEMUNZE on the perimeter around the eagle.


The other six coins are dated 1893, 1894, 1901 & 1915. Although they have the date and a numerical value (either 1, 2 or 10) on the reverse, there is no indication of the unit, i.e., franc, mark, shilling, etc.


Can anyone tell me the name of the country and its unit(s) of currency?
