    Nice coin. Very influential family of their time. I have only one Franz Joseph, an 1892 re-strike in gold, 8 Florin/20 Francs
    I love the Habsburg double headed eagles.
    Here is some reading if you are so inclined. The following paragraph;
    Because the imperial title was from the sixteenth century on almost continuously vested in members of the Habsburg dynasty, the Habsburg emperor adopted the imperial double-headed eagle with an inescutcheon showing the coats of arms of their lands, devised to underscore the ties between the imperial title and the Habsburgs.
