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 Silver Philharmonic coins

These 1 oz Silver coins were added to the popular Austrian Philharmonic coin series in 2008, though the series itself was first introduced by the Austrian Mint in 1989 with Gold coins. Producing Gold and Silver coins for sale for more than 800 years, the Austrian Mint is the sole mint of the Republic of Austria. Initially, Silver bullion coins and other Precious Metals coins were struck using a minting hammer. However, in the 16th century, other minting methods were used with the invention of new machines, such as the rocker press and screw press. Silver bullion you buy now has been created using ring striking, which has been used in some shape or form by the Austrian Mint since 1830.

Why invest in 1 oz Silver Philharmonic coins?

Many choose to invest in these 1 oz Silver coins because the Silver bullion coins have a low premium over the spot price of Silver, making the bullion a cost-effective way to acquire Silver. These Silver coins for sale have the added benefits of being one of the most easily recognized coins worldwide, and the Silver bullion coins are guaranteed for weight and purity by the Austrian Mint. Both of these benefits make the Silver bullion coins easier to trade or sell when the time is right. Buy Silver coins such as these, and you can also add them to your Precious Metals IRA because the Internal Revenue Service approves of the Silver coins for use based on their .999 fine Silver content.

Add 1 oz Silver Philharmonic coins to your world coin collection.

While many choose 1 oz Silver Philharmonic coins for investing, the Silver coins are also ideal for coin collectors. Add these Silver coins for sale to your world coin collection and you gain a Silver coin that pays tribute to one of the most famous assets of Austria, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The obverse of the Silver bullion coins features the grand pipe organ located in the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, while the reverse features an assortment of musical instruments used by the orchestra. After purchasing these coins, expand your collection further by buying Silver coins such as Australian Silver Kangaroos and Mexican Silver Libertads.

Great Coin Design

By  hcobb

from Alabama

5.0

IMHO this is one of the best coin designs on the sovereign bullion market today!!! Where most countries choose to honor their past/current leaders or re-vamp one of their historic coin designs (i.e. US eagles, maple leafs, krugerrands, etc.), Austria has chosen to honor their rich history of classical music. Kudos to them for thinking outside the box. Although I love US Eagles and Canadian Maple Leafs, there's just something neat about this coins design.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition

Cons

When buying 1 oz Silver Philharmonic coins, why should I care about the Silver spot price?

Before buying 1 oz Silver coins such as the Silver Philharmonic, check the Silver spot price on our historical Silver price chart in order to make an informed decision that will enhance your investment. The higher the Silver spot price, the more you will pay for these Silver coins for sale. A higher Silver spot price is to your benefit, though, when selling your Silver bullion. To buy Silver coins when the Silver spot price dips, set up an APMEX Market Alert noting your target Silver spot price, and we will email or text you when your target price is met.
