The double-headed eagle of the ruling House of Habsburg-Lorraine was used by the common Imperial and Royal (k. u. k.) institutions of the dual monarchy. Additionally, each of the two parts of the real union had its own coat of arms. As the double-headed eagle was reminiscent of the Reichsadler insignia of the defunct Holy Roman Empire and also the symbol of the Cisleithanian ('Austrian') half of the real union, the Hungarian government urged for the introduction of a new common coat of arms, which took place in 1915, in the midst of World War I. The new insignia combined the coat of arms of the separate halves of the Dual Monarchy, linked by the armorials of the Habsburg-Lorraine dynasty and the motto indivisibiliter ac inseparabiliter ('indivisible and inseparable') back: laureate head facing right Lettering: FRANC·IOS·I·D·G·AVSTRIAE IMPERATOR "Fransciscus Iosephus I Dei Gratia Austriae Imperator" Engraver: Josef Tautenhayn • quantity 1 • demonetized {no longer in circulation} polished Silver (.400) coin • diameter: 18 mm • weight: 1.6 g ***Choose from drop down menu *** {2 mm thick cords} 22" black cotton necklace 24" silver plated ball chain 1-1/8" silver color keychain with 30 mm ring {see last photo} ***If you need different length black necklace please leave a note upon checkout***
