The reverse side of the coin shows the old Kärntnertor Theatre ("Theatre at the Carinthian Gate" which stood near the present Opera House until 1870). It was here that Beethoven's 9th symphony with the "Ode to Joy" was first publidly performed. The opening notes of the melody in the symphony itself and a cameo portrait of Beethoven complete the design.
One is struck from the first by this nine sided coin, symbolic for the nine federal provinces of Austria. Their coats-of arms encircle the denomination "5" with the inscription "Republik Österreich" and "Euro".
