The Vienna Mint in Austria has produced calendar medals annually since 1933.

The calendar medal, dated 1935 on both sides, shows the day of the week for each day of the year, along with: the 12 signs of the zodiac and their personifications; the dates of the full moons, spring, summer, winter, and fall; major religious holidays including Easter, Pentecost, Advent, and the Feast of Corpus Christi; and eclipses of the sun and moon.
