The coin in question is Austrian and represents the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is a non-commemorative coin, but a standard one. Each state, in fact, always mints its own coins. The obverse of the coin shows the design of the states of the European Union surmounted by 6 vertical lines, delimited on the sides by two rows of stars. The currency name is placed on the left.
Coins from 2012-2013 are the most sought after because mintage was very limited in those days. Specimens from those years are worth around € 18-20, while all other years are worth €1. The situation changes if you get your hands on a very strange and rare specimen, perhaps misshapen, missing a date or with completely inconsistent two sides of the coin. In this case, a coin in such a condition is sure to go for a huge amount.
