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.
Austria 1 oz Gold Philharmonic Coins in the MarketplaceA relatively recent addition to the global coin market is the Austrian Gold Philharmonic. Inspired by one of Vienna’s most famous cultural symbols, music, this series of coins has quickly become one of the best-selling forms of bullion in Europe. 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 Gold bullion coin is .9999 fine and the quality is guaranteed.
The 1 oz Vienna Philharmonic is an Austrian coin made from Gold bullion, with both Silver and Platinum versions made as well. The Münze Österreich AG, or Austrian Mint, strikes the coin each year to high-quality standards. Initially, the Gold Philharmonic had a face value of 2,000 Austrian schillings, but the country has since adopted the euro as its official currency. Therefore, the 2019 Gold Philharmonic has a legal tender value in Austria of €100. The Platinum Philharmonic also carries the same face value.
1 oz Philharmonic Austrian Gold CoinsIn 1998, after years of restriction, the Austrian government passed legislation that allowed bullion coins to be issued, which is when the Philharmonic Gold coin was born. While numerous ideas were presented, ultimately it was decided that music would be the best theme to represent the nation, since the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is among the most famous in the world.
Thomas Pesendorfer, chief engraver at the Austrian Mint, designed this elegant coin. The obverse is decorated with the well-known pipe organ from the Wiener Musikverein, the concert hall the Philharmonic calls home. Above the organ, the name “Republik Österreich,” is featured, alongside confirmations of this Gold coin's weight and purity. Several other musical instruments were chosen for the reverse: four violins, a cello, a Viennese horn, the bassoon and a beautiful harp.
The pipe organ shown on the 2019 Gold Austria Philharmonic is known the world over, due to the televised New Year’s concerts that are broadcast annually from Vienna.
