Worth Their Weight in Silver
Did you know...that the Austrian five schelling coin was emblazoned with the image of a Spanish Riding School Lipizzan? The coin was real silver, but its use was discontinued when Austria switched to the ubiquitous Euro system in 1999.
One of the nicest souvenirs (in my opinion) sold on the 2005 USA tour is a pendant of this coin. I think you can order one online at www.spanishridingschool.com
Santa, are you reading this?
