APMEX uses a special machine for this sealing process to ensure the products you receive are sealed completely, once they are removed directly from the mint boxes. The mint tubes are placed on the conveyor leading into the machine, and the sealing process seals both ends of each tube with tamper-evident packaging. If this tube has been opened or tampered with in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the tube is removed from the machine and checked to ensure the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished tube of MintDirect® 2018 1 oz Silver Philharmonic coins.
Once completed, the MintDirect® tubes are stored in the vault until they are ordered by our customers. By using this process, APMEX can guarantee the coins you receive are in exactly the same condition and packaging as they were when they left the Austrian Mint.
The MintDirect® process provides you the assurance this product has not been opened, sorted or searched. Click here for more details.
The Rich Illustrious History of the Austrian MintIn 1194, Richard the Lionheart paid his own ransom of 12 tons of Silver to Duke Leopold V of Austria. King Richard secured his freedom and unintentionally laid the foundation for the Austrian Mint, as Duke Leopold ordered coins struck from Richard the Lionheart’s ransom. In doing so, Leopold began the Vienna Mint, though it would be another 200 years before the Vienna Mint was mentioned by name in historical documents. More than 800 years of minting history were set in motion by that ransom.
The Vienna Mint was originally situated near Hoher Merkt but was moved to several locations in Vienna over the years. However, the mint has been housed in Heumarkt in central Vienna for nearly 200 years, where coins are produced to this day. In 1989, the name was officially changed to the Austrian Mint and was designated a subsidiary of the Austrian National Bank.
The Silver Austrian Philharmonic was launched in 2008 and is legal tender in Austria.
