Vienna Philharmonic coins are popular bullion coins made from Gold, Silver and Platinum. The Gold Philharmonic was first offered for purchase on October 10, 1989. The 1 oz Gold coin was made from .9999 fine Gold with a face value of 2,000 Austrian schillings. In 2002, the nominal face value changed to €100 with the adoption of the euro. Since its inception, the Gold Philharmonic has retained a depiction of the great pipe organ in the Vienna Musikverein’s Golden Hall on the obverse and an array of instruments, including the cello, violin, harp, Vienna horn and bassoon, on the reverse. Gold Philharmonic coins come in a variety of sizes, including 1/25 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz and 1 oz Gold coins.

On February 1, 2008, a 1 oz Silver version of the coin was issued. The Silver Philharmonics feature the same designs found on the Gold Philharmonics and are made of .999 fine Silver. The Austrian Mint decided to further expand their Philharmonic line with a 1 oz Platinum coin in 2016. The Platinum Philharmonic kept the same design as the Gold and Silver Philharmonics and is made from .9995 fine Platinum.

For the 15th anniversary of the Vienna Philharmonic Gold bullion coin in 2004, the Austrian Mint created a 1,000 oz version with a face value of €100,000. The "Big Phil" coin contains 31.103 kg of .9999 fine Gold. For the 20th anniversary, the Austrian Mint created a 20 oz .9999 fine Gold Philharmonic coin. On the 25th anniversary, the Austrian Mint introduced a new size in the series with the 1/25 oz .9999 fine Gold Philharmonic coin that is a permanent size for the series.

The history of 1 oz Gold Philharmonic coins

The idea to produce 1/4 oz and 1 oz Philharmonic coins for investment was born when a change to an Austrian law in 1988 made it legal to issue Gold coins for use as an investment. While many themes for the Austrian Gold coins were discussed, the Austrian government chose the theme of music because it is a language that transcends the limitations of spoken words, and Austria is famous for its Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The first of these world coins were introduced to the market in 1989, and as the years passed, other sizes of these wildly popular Gold coins have been added to the series.

Why invest in 1 oz Gold Philharmonic coins?

1 oz Gold Philharmonic coins are highly popular among investors because they are one of the few Gold coins available with a purity of .9999 fine Gold. Guaranteed by the Austrian government, the Austrian Gold coins remain a top-seller worldwide year after year. Some investors choose the Gold coins because they are eligible for use with Precious Metals IRAs. The world coins make an excellent addition to any investment portfolio.

1 oz Gold Philharmonic coins blend beauty and music into a Gold masterpiece.

More than investment coins, 1 oz Gold Philharmonic coins embody two themes common to humanity: music and beauty. Both sides of the Gold Philharmonic features musical instruments that not only represent music in general, but also pay homage directly to the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. These Austrian Gold coins were designed by the Austrian Mint’s chief engraver, Thomas Pesendorfer, a master of his craft with many award-winning coin designs. On the obverse, the world coin features a rendition of the famous pipe organ located in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein, Vienna’s concert hall. The reverse of the Gold coin depicts eight orchestral instruments: the Viennese horn, the bassoon, the harp, the cello and four violins.

APMEX offered this coin (Austrian Philharmonic) along with South African Krugerrands and Austrian Kangaroos at a discounted price. All the coins came in mint condition. They were near perfect, gorgeous, shiny coins. Impressive. The packaging was excellent: a large, well made plastic box padded, with the coins shipped in flips or plastic cases. Don't think it can get better that this. -- Paladin

It took me a while to pull the trigger on the Philharmonic but it was worth the wait. Very beautiful 9999 gold coin. I ordered 2 of these, one was a 2000 and the other was a 2011. It's nice to have varied years on the coins. If you are a music buff, you will really appreciate the Philharmonic. The design is amazing. This one belongs in every gold coin collection.

APMEX came through as always! But in my opinion this product looks more like an arcade token than a 1700.00+ coin. I own some American Coins, the China Panda, and the Krugerand, I like them all better than this one. But that is only my opinion-so take it for what it's worth.

My second favorite bullion coin to own. They cost less than my favorite Maple Leafs, but are still PURE gold, and won't tarnish like less pure coins, such as costly American Eagles. APMEX is the best place to buy these. I've been collecting rare and bullion coins for 3 decades now, and APMEX can't be beat for price, service, and integrity.
