Today a landmark in Klagenfurt, where it is carved in stone next to a statue of Hercules, the Lindwurm was, according to local folklore, a dragon-like beast that terrorised the peasants and inhibited trade around the Carinthian capital in the Middle Ages. Designed by chief engraver Thomas Pesendorfer, the obverse of this magnificent coin shows the mythical beast’s present-day resting place, while the reverse tells the story of its slaughter in impressively dramatic detail designed by his colleague Helmut Andexlinger. Coin Design by: Thomas Pesendorfer / Helmut Andexlinger.
