Tribute to The Rich Musical History of Austria

The world-famous Vienna Philharmonic bullion coin is a popular coin for investors, with the silver coin first introduced to the market in 2008. It was the first time in Europe that a 99.9% pure silver bullion coin had been put on the market and within a month, over a million coins had been produced. At 99.9% pure silver, this 1 oz coin is a must-have for any collector.

About the Austrian Philharmonic Silver Coin

Since their introduction in 2008, Austrian Silver Philharmonics have grown in popularity, making them the best-selling silver bullion coin in Europe. Every year, tens of millions of Silver Philharmonics are produced and sold to investors and collectors all over the world. They are also the only bullion coin denominated in euros, although they are only considered to be legal tender in Austria.

The coin pays tribute not only to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, but also to the rich musical history of the Austrian capital. Not only was Mozart born in Vienna, but a long list of composers, including Strauss, Beethoven, and Haydn, lived and worked there.

As legal money in the Republic of Austria, the Austrian Mint guarantees its weight and purity and has a face value of 1.50 euros. It is the only Euro coin made of silver.

The Austrian Mint made the first Austrian Philharmonic gold bullion coins in 1989. The first coins were 1 oz and 1/4 oz of gold. In 1991, a 1/10 oz coin was added; in 1994, a 1/2 oz coin; and in 2014, a 1/25 oz coin. In 2008, 1 oz of silver was the first choice for the Silver Philharmonic. In 2016, a 1 oz platinum coin came out; in 2017, a 1/25 oz platinum coin did the same.

Austrian silver philharmonic coins are 1 oz silver bullion coins with a fineness of .999 (99.9% pure silver). It has a €1.50 face value, a 37 mm diameter, and a 3.2 mm thickness.

The images on the Silver Philharmonic were designed in 1989 by Austrian Mint Chief Engraver Thomas Pesendorfer to commemorate the country’s rich musical culture.

The obverse, designed by expert engraver Thomas Pesendorfer, depicts the Great Organ in Vienna’s Musikverein, a traditional concert hall of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

The inscriptions on both sides of the coin are in German, Austria’s official language. The font on the philharmonic silver coin was inspired by the Vienna Secession, a late-nineteenth-century artistic movement that championed artistic innovation.
