1 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins

The Austrian Gold Philharmonic is a very popular gold bullion coin. In fact, according to the World Gold Council, this coin led worldwide gold coin sales in 1992, 1995 and 1996.

The Philharmonic is a very unique coin in that the images are not of your typical national symbols. They include a cello, four violins, a Vienna horn, bassoon, and harp. The name of the German orchestra, “WIENER PHILHARMONIKER” is struck across the top. The reverse depicts a great organ that was found in the concert hall, where the famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra plays.

The coin was first produced in 1989 and is .9999 percent pure gold with no alloy metals. These coins are minted at the Austrian Mint AG, a subsidiary of the Austrian National Bank. The Austrian Gold Philharmonic coin is guaranteed for its purity and weight by the Austrian Mint.

History and Origin

The Austrian Mint in Vienna has been minting coins for over 800 years! This rich heritage is represented in the Austrian Philharmonic gold coins. Introduced in 1989, these coins pay homage to Austria's deep-rooted musical tradition, particularly the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. When the world faced a shortage of investment-grade gold coins due to sanctions on the Krugerrand, the Austrian Mint seized the opportunity. The result? A gold bullion coin that not only filled the void but also became a symbol of Austria's musical 

The Future of Gold and the Philharmonic Coin

The Gold Philharmonic, with its rich history and global recognition, is poised to remain a leader among gold coins. As more investors recognize the importance of diversifying their portfolios, the demand for gold and, by extension, the Philharmonic coin, is set to rise. Its legacy, both as a representation of Austria's musical heritage and as a solid investment, ensures its place in the future of gold trading.
