The History of 1 oz Gold Philharmonic Coins

Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins are named in honor of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra. The orchestra was founded in 1842 and is counted among the finest in the world. The Vienna Philharmonic is based at the famous Musikverein in Vienna, Austria. Performers are selected from the orchestra of the Vienna State Opera in an arduous application process. Each musician must demonstrate proficiency at their instrument for at least three years, performing for the opera and ballet. After this period, the musician may formally request an application for a seat in the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra. It is this world-class orchestra that inspires the artwork on both the obverse and reverse of these Austrian Gold coins. Since its launch in 1989, the Austria Gold Philharmonic has become one of the best-selling bullion coins in the world. The Gold Philharmonic was originally struck in 1 oz and 1/4 oz sizes, but more fractionals have been available in 1/10 oz since 1991, 1/2 oz since 1994 and 1/25 oz since 2014.
