When its last section was ceremoniously opened in 1857, the imperial and royal Southern Railway connected Vienna with Trieste and the sea. Southern Railway connected Vienna with Trieste and the sea. The port city on the Adriatic was of enormous economic importance for the Habsburg Empire.
The first section of the southern railroad between Baden and Wiener Neustadt had already been opened in 1841. In May 1842, the southern railroad reached Gloggnitz. Then the great geological obstacle of Semmering had to be overcome. Austrian engineers around Carl von Ghega managed this feat and closed the gap between Gloggnitz and Mürzzuschlag between 1849 and 1854. The steam locomotive "Steinbrück" was built especially for this line in 1848. It is depicted on the coin in front of a viaduct of the Semmering Railway. A look at the other side of the coin gives a vivid impression of historic Trieste with its harbor and train station: ships are anchored in the harbor, and a Type 17c 372 locomotive, built in Floridsdorf, is just leaving the station.
The coin is sold including beautiful box and certificate of authenticity.
