The ‘New Austrian Tunnelling Method’, which uses the geographical stress of surrounding rock to strengthen a tunnel, was developed from 1957 to 1965 and has since done a great deal to revolutionize tunnel construction around the world.

The coin features a present-day tunnel boring machine positioned within the ice blue niobium core. The outer silver ring shows the mountains that this engineering wonder cuts through. The reverse design shows a road tunnel within Austria’s alpine landscape. The silver ring contains an image of a worker using a drill to loosen rock. The word “Tunnelbau” (tunnel construction) appears at the base.
