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.
Philharmonic Silver Coins and Austria’s Love of MusicThe 1 oz Vienna Philharmonic is made in Austria from .999 fine Silver bullion. The Austrian Mint has struck the the series each year since 2008. Inspired by one of Vienna’s most famous cultural symbols, music, this series of coins has become one of the best-selling forms of bullion in Europe. While numerous ideas were suggested for the original design, it was overwhelmingly decided that classical music would be used. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, founded in 1842, is regarded by many to be one of the best in the world.
The 2019 Silver Vienna Philharmonic has a face value of 1.50 euros, although the value of the Precious Metal content is much higher. Musical instruments appear on both the obverse and the reverse, making this a particular favorite among collectors and investors who have a sincere appreciation for classical music and Austrian history. The Vienna Philharmonic Silver bullion coin is .999 fine and the quality is guaranteed.
The Birth of the Austria 1 oz Silver Philharmonic CoinThe Austrian government passed legislation in 1998 that allowed bullion coins to be issued, which is when the Philharmonic coin was born. The Gold version proved to be so popular that a few years later, the Silver Vienna Philharmonic coin was created. The Austrian Mint recently introduced a Platinum version of the Philharmonic with the same exquisite design by Thomas Pesendorfer, their chief engraver.
The obverse is struck with the famous pipe organ installed at the Wiener Musikverein concert hall, home to the Vienna Philharmonic. The words “Republik Österreich,” are featured above the instrument, with words indicating weight and Silver purity. While the pipe organ gets a solo on the obverse, an energetic group of instruments appear on the reverse. A cello takes center stage, surrounded by four violins, a winding Viennese horn and a beautiful harp. The bassoon represents the woodwind section.
The organ represented on the 2019 Silver Vienna Philharmonic was built in 1913 by the Gebrüder Rieger company of Jägerndorf, Silesia.
