Additional Info


The Vienna Philharmonic coin was first introduced in 1989, with its first two versions being a 1/4 ounce and 1-ounce coin. Its popularity sparked over the coming years of 1992, 1995, 1996 and 2000, according to the (WGC) World Gold Council.  

Historical Beginning & Design of the coin

The Austrian government had passed a law in November of 1998 that saw the permission to issue gold coins for investment purposes. The amendment in the law saw the Austrian Mint proposing a gold coin that would symbolise Austria. The design process of the gold coin was lengthy, as many themes were presented. However, the theme that stood its ground was music. Austria has had many world-renown musicians such as Mozart, Franz Shubert and many more. 

Ultimately, the Chief engraver of the Austrian Mint at the time, Thomas Pesendorfer, would engrave the reverse side eight characteristic orchestral instruments, four violins on either side of a cello in the foreground and the Viennese horn, the bassoon and the harp behind. On the obverse side, the famous pipe organ from the Goldener Saal of the Viennese Musikverein (a renowned concert hall recognised worldwide) was the backdrop to the Philharmonic's new year concerts. Above the organ, the words "Republik Oesterreich" is visible in a semi-circle fashion. The weight, purity, and issue date are displayed below the organ.
