About the Austrian Silver Philharmonics Silver Coins
The Austrian Silver Philharmonic coin is among the most popular bullion coins worldwide, especially among avid collectors. Introduced by the Austrian Mint in 2008 follows the successful Gold Philharmonic coins. These coins are known for their beautiful design and high-quality minting.
The design of the coin is identical each year. Both sides of the coin feature musical instruments representing the Vienna Philharmonic, one of the world's most renowned orchestras. The obverse side of the coin features the Great Organ found in the Golden Hall in Vienna's Musikverein, the concert hall where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs. Surrounding the organ are the German words "REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH" (Republic of Austria), the face value, the year of issue, the weight, and the purity of the silver (1 Unze Feinsilber, meaning "1 ounce pure silver").
The reverse side of the coin features a collection of orchestral instruments, including a Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, and four violins centered around a cello. Above the instruments is the German inscription "Wiener Philharmoniker," meaning "Vienna Philharmonic."
The Silver Philharmonic coins are minted in .999 fine silver and have a face value of 1.50 Euros, but their market value is higher due to the spot silver prices and desirability among coin collectors and investors. While all these coins are popular due to their design and the reputation of the Austrian Mint, their popularity does not typically vary significantly from year to year because the design remains the same.
