This is a matt proof 20 Euro coin released by Muenze Osterrich in 2017.  It's a part of a set but the only one I have.  It's about 22g of .925 silver.  Maria Theresa appears on a lot of coinage from Austria, including the eponymous Maria Theresa thalers, which have been produced as restrikes of the 1780 design since her death.  Shot with 3 different lighting setups.

It's part of a set of 4 - matt proofs.  I've only got this one, though.

Regardless, the one you have is eye candy.

It's certainly a nice design.  One could get the rest of the set - they're available from Muenze Osterrich - but they're about 50 quid each.

Thanks for the heads-up. Cool

1927 proof florin

That's quite a nice florin - I don't have any proofs, but I've got a handful of circulated florins in the VF-EF range, and a few crowns.  I think McKennal's George V portrait is actually my favourite of the effigies on British coinage.  A lot of folks like Wyon's young Victoria (which is nice, simple and elegant) or the Gillick or Machin portraits of Liz.

I haven't got any ancient coins, although I've been tempted to get an Owl tetradrachm from time to time.

Gothic Florin

That one's in pretty good nick - the obverse particularly.  I find that Victorian era silver coinage like florins or crowns get quite pricey when they're in good condition, and a lot of it is quite worn.  This one, the portrait on the obverse still has most of its detail.

@tray - if you're taking this with a mobile, splash out on a tripod and a clamp for the camera.  On Android phones, there's a good camera app called OpenCamera that lets you do raw photos, tweak camera settings and such like.  On iOS the camera app has a lot of these features already, I believe.
Yes I will and definitely should do, being lazy

They are getting very pricey. When I started sovereigns were £60 I paid about £70 for that 1927 proof florin would have been about 20 years ago. It's now 250 to 300 pound. I have a lovely set of the Manchester commonwealth games 2002. I pay £22 for it
now well over 100 when some of the modern proofs are coming down in value
