Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins are an excellent choice for any collector to add to their portfolio. Considered to be Europe’s most successful investment coin!One way of visualizing the success of the Vienna Philharmonic gold coin is to imagine that if all the coins ever sold were piled on top of each other, they would surpass the 8,850 meters of Mount Everest. They would in fact form a pillar measuring over 15,000 meters in height. This coin comes without packaging, in a blister pack or in a fine red case.

Historical Overview:

In 1989, the Austrian Mint became a public company. The gold Vienna Philharmonic followed later that year. Named in honor of Vienna’s world-renowned orchestra. The original face value of each coin was 2,000 Austrian Shillings, or approximately, $165 USD. It changed to the Euro in 2002. It has a face value of 100 Euros now, or approximately $113 USD. They are comprised of 99.99% pure gold! The 1 oz. version carries the unique distinction of having the largest diameter in the world for its size and purity.

Philharmonic: IN DESIGN

The Austrian Mint asked Chief Engraver Thomas Pesendorfer to design its official gold bullion coin. Mr. Pesendorfer came up with a design that reflected the cultural pride Austrians have in their beloved orchestra. The following details highlight the designs of the Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin:

  • On the OBVERSE of all Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins is the image of the Musikverein Golden Hall with a pipe organ inside.  This side of the coin includes German engravings, the native tongue of Austria, which read “Republik Oesterreich,” “Unze Gold 9999,” and the coin’s weight, face value, and year of issue.

  • The REVERSE side of Gold Philharmonic coins includes a variety of musical instruments used by members of the Vienna Philharmonic. These include a large cello in the center with two violins on either side. In the background; however, you will notice a harp, horn, and bassoon. Engravings on this face are also in German and read “Weiner Philharmoniker.”

Much like the designs on the Canadian Maple Leaf and the American Gold Eagle, the designs on the Austrian Philharmonic never changed.

For now, the Gold Philharmonics are the only version to have FIVE sizes available. 1/25 oz – 1 oz. The Platinum Philharmonics are available in TWO size. 1/25 oz. and 1 oz. Yet, the Silver Philharmonic remains lonely with just the 1 oz. version.

While the gold Philharmonic is one of the favorite of it’s kind, the Platinum version, is just as valuable to collectors. It is an excellent alternative to the gold version. The Silver Philharmonic, carries a much smaller value; however, silver enthusiast around the globe still purchase these classically designed coins.
