The word ducat is from Medieval Latin ducatus = “relating to a duke (or dukedom)”, and initially meant “duke’s coin” or a “duchy’s coin” During the 1400s, international traders in Western Europe shifted from the florin to the ducat as their preferred currency as a trade coin in Europe from the later medieval centuries until as late as the 20th century.
Investors now value Ducats for their Gold bullion content and collectors treasure their classic design. On the obverse of these coins is the former ruler of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the majestic Franz Joseph I. On the reverse, the former coat of arms of the Austrian Empire.
