The reverse of the first coin in this series, Styria, was designed by Viktoria Reicht from Kirchbach in Styria and features the forests, apples and pumpkins her home province is famous for. Designed by chief designer Thomas Pesendorfer, the coin's obverse shows the magical Historic Centre and Schloss Eggenberg UNESCO World Heritage Site of the provincial capital of Styria, Graz. Some of the city's other landmarks, such as its clock tower, town hall, mausoleum dome and baroque church tower, also feature.
