This is like buying Tylenol vs. acetaminophen.

Both are the same, but with Tylenol, you are paying for the name so it is more costly. Also, these Austrian coins are slightly less than 1 oz (0.9802). It's nicer to have a coin that is exactly 1 oz. Lastly, the name brand coins are more accepted and more easily recognized. They make you pay for all of those desired characteristics.
