* The 2010 Proof Silver Charlemagne in the Untersberg has a limited mintage of only 40,000!
Intricate and detailed, the coin depicts the legend of the Holy Roman Emperor and his army sleeping beneath the Untersberg near Salzburg, though ready to wake from their slumber and be called back to action once ravens ceased flying above the mountain. A simple shepherd boy was chosen by a dwarf to inform Charlemagne whether ravens were still flying, which allowed the Emperor to go back to sleep for another century and thus avoided further strife and military conflict in the region. Coin Design by: Thomas Pesendorfer / Helmut Andexlinger.
