In    2003, the Austrian Mint issued the world's first coin, which was made of niobium. The coin was dedicated to the 700th anniversary of the city of Hull in Tyrol and was a huge success with collectors, primarily due to the unusual material, as well as the color that the coin had. The outer ring of the coin was made of 900 silver, and the inner part was made of niobium.

   The obverse of the coin depicts a satellite photographing the city of Hull. On the left side is the inscription "HALL IN TIROL" and under it is indicated the year of release "2003." On the right is the name of the country "REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH" next to which the face value "25 EURO" is placed.

   On the reverse of the coin in the central part is a stamp for minting the old silver guldiner of 1486. On the outer ring is the inscription "700 JAHRE STADT HALL IN TIROL" ("700 YEARS TO THE CITY OF HULL IN TYROL").
