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.

Why does the price of these 2009 Gold coins keep changing?
When observing the price of this 20th Anniversary Gold Philharmonic, you will notice that price changes throughout the day and night. Unlike stocks, which have official trading hours and closing prices, Gold is traded 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and this constant trading is what creates the fluctuations in the Gold spot price per ounce. No one can buy Gold coins at the Gold spot price because that is the cost for raw Gold. Instead, Gold coin prices include a premium above the Gold spot price to cover the cost of fabrication, distribution, a minimal dealer fee and any numismatic or collector value, which takes into account factors such as the scarcity, quality and historic value of the Gold coin.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Gold Philharmonic, the Austrian Mint released 2,009 of these 20 oz Gold Philharmonic coins to each of its major markets: Europe, Japan and the United States.

Philharmonics in general are one the most beautifully designed coins in the world. Aside from the regular 1 oz coin, this beautiful philharmonic is available in a 20 oz limited denomination. The huge size makes this coin more beautiful and unique. It's a great option to have a govt-backed coin in this denomination. I'd rather go with a govt backed coin than a privately made bar. Not too many options for coins in this weight. Take advantage of it while you can as it has limited mintage!
