This marvelous coin is created in order to celebrate the significant Austrian cultural event – Centenary of the Salzburg Festival. The coin’s obverse has the appearance of a plate with a flat inner part.
The Salzburg Festival was founded on 22 August 1920, when the director Max Reinhardt staged Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s morality play «Jedermann» in Salzburg’s Cathedral Square for the first time. After that, it became a tradition to stage this play in every festival, starting with 1926 till now, except the times of the Nazi regime.

Another peculiarity of this festival is a wide range of cultural variety, beginning from Mozart’s pieces and ending with innovative performances.
