In 2004, Austria honored the great composer "Joseph Haydn" with a 50-euro commemorative coin in precious gold (986/1000), minted in the highest quality "proof" (PP). The commemorative coin honors the main representative of the Viennese Classicism in an impressive way.
Franz Joseph Haydn was born in Rohrau in Lower Austria in 1732. From 1766 Haydn was the first Kapellmeister of the Esterházy family, one of the most influential families of the Holy Roman Empire at that time. After the death of Prince Nikolaus Esterházy, Joseph Haydn, as he colloquially called himself, was dismissed and thus involuntarily became an independent musician. From now on, he taught Ludwig van Beethoven, who was 21 years old at the time. His song "Gott, erhalte den Kaiser!", composed in 1797 for Emperor Franz II, now serves with new lyrics as the national anthem of Germany. Joseph Haydn died in Vienna on May 31, 1809. He was buried in Hundsturm Cemetery, now Haydn Park in Vienna-Meidling.
