50th anniversary of the Austrian State Treaty
The outer ring bears the twelve stars of the European Union.
The inner part shows a reproduction of the signatures and seals from the last page of the Austrian State Treaty, signed in May 1955 by the Foreign Ministers and the Ambassadors of the Soviet Union, Great Britain, USA and France, and the then Austrian Foreign Minister Leopold Figl, with the inscription ‘50 JAHRE STAATSVERTRAG’ above the seals, running along the upper edge of the inner part in a quasi-semicircle slightly tilted to the right. At the bottom left is the year of issue, 2005.
The vertically-striped background of the inner part depicts the heraldic representation of the Austrian national colours (red-white-red).
