About the Series - Empress Maria Theresa
Celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Empress Maria Theresa in 1717, this four-coin series is based on the four cardinal virtues which drove the only ever female ruler of the Habsburg Empire. Courage, Justice, Clemency and Prudence are combined with four different portraits of the Empress: as a young woman, as a wife alongside her husband, Francis Stephen, as a widow and with her successor, Joseph. Each coin features an amalgam of original motifs taken from medals issued during Maria Theresa's 40-year reign (1740-1780), is minted in extra bold relief that gives it a special antique look.
About the Coin - Clemency
Devastated by the death of Francis, Maria Theresa dressed in mourning for the rest of her life and even had the room in which he died, in the Hofburg in Innsbruck, converted into a chapel. The portrait of Maria Theresa wearing a veil on the coin’s obverse is from a relief by Anton Guillemard (1747-1812), while the coin’s reverse shows an allegorical representation of Clemency in which a female figure offers her hand to a fallen soldier.
Born on 13 May 1717, Empress Maria Theresa unexpectedly came to power at the age of 23. Although unprepared for the role of ruler, driven by the four cardinal virtues, Courage, Justice, Clemency and Prudence, Maria Theresa managed to take the helm of the Habsburg Empire for 40 years, during which she steered it on a highly successful course. The embodiment of both monarchic and matriarchal virtues, even during her own lifetime the imposing Empress made it difficult to distinguish between the woman and the myth.
