Restrike

Restrike – an officially produced coin that's struck from an original die. Restrike gold and silver coins are issued with a retrospective date by the original mint or an officially authorised manufacturer.  The 1915 Franz Joseph I Kronen, an official restrike of the original Austrian Gold Kronen coin that was minted from 1892 until 1916 and the Austrian Mint's famous 1718 Maria Theresia Thaler silver coin are good examples. Although restrikes don't have the legal tender status of the originals, they are still a great investment for their precious metal content and their historical connotations.  However, collectors and investors should be aware that the word 'restrike' is sometimes used to describe fakes so it's advisable to always buy from a reputable dealer like coininvest.com.
