The Gold Philharmonic Coin
1 oz Gold Philharmonic coins were first offered for purchase by the Austrian Mint in 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 of Philharmonic Gold coins changed to €100 with the adoption of the euro. Since its inception, the Gold Philharmonic coin 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. For the 15th anniversary of the Gold Philharmonic in 2004, the Austrian Mint created a 1,000 oz Gold Philharmonic coin called “Big Phil”, with a face value of €100,000, and for the 20th Anniversary a 20 oz Gold Philharmonic coin was created. Today, 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 Philharmonics.

In addition to the various sizes of Gold Philharmonic coins available, the Austrian Mint introduced a Silver Philharmonic coins containing 1 oz of .999 fine Silver in 2008, and two sizes of Platinum Philharmonic coins in .9995 fine Platinum: a 1 oz Platinum version in 2016, and a 1/25 oz Platinum in 2018. Both the Silver and Platinum Philharmonics feature the same design as the Gold Philharmonic coins, paying tribute to Vienna Musikverein’s Golden Hall and the various instruments of the Vienna Philharmonic.
