“Brigantium” Final Coin In “Rome on the Danube” silver Series


June 13, 2012 (Vienna) – The Austrian Mint today will issue "Brigantium", the sixth and final silver coin in the historic "Rome on the Danube" series.

The Roman Empire was certainly very powerful and influential in many regions of Europe; today's Austria was no exception.  Much of this was because of the interconnected complex of rivers and lakes found in this area of Europe.  One of the most efficient and effective transportation networks for centuries.
