The Vienna Philharmonic is the most popular gold coin in Europe and one of the best-selling gold coin in the world.
From November 1998 on, a change in Austrian legislation allowed the issuance of pure gold coins for investment purposes. This gave rise to the idea of designing an Austrian gold coin. Many themes were considered, but it was music, a harmonious ambassador whose language is understood around the world, that finally won the vote. Nothing better to symbolize music than the prestigious Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
While most of the bullion coins were created by two different designers, the Philharmonic has been fully designed by Thomas Pesendorfer, the Austrian Mint’s chief engraver.
The obverse side of 2023 1 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins includes a depiction of the Great Organ, a large pipe organ from the Goldener Saal of the Viennese Musikverein. Also known as the Golden Concert Hall, this is the venue where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra holds its performances in Vienna. Above the organ, the words ‘REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH’ stand in a semi-circle, while the weight, ‘1 UNZE GOLD’, and purity of the coin, ‘999.9’, with the date of issue below, ‘2023’, stand beneath the balustrade of the organ. On the lower edge of the coin is inscribed its face value, '100 EURO' (before the adoption of the euro in 2002, the face value was 2,000 Austrian schillings).
The reverse states ‘WIENER PHILHARMONIKER’ over the design of eight characteristic orchestral instruments: four violins either side of a cello in the foreground and the Viennese horn, the bassoon and the harp behind.
Timeless style, timeless value, in what has been called “certainly one of the most reliable bullion coins in existence.” (Coinweek)
The 2023 gold Vienna Philharmonic is an investment for those who appreciate old-world wealth and classicism. This bullion coin will also delight investors who appreciate the very highest standards of purity and sustainability applied during its manufacture.
