Why buy this 1 oz Silver 2020 EUR1.50 Austria Philharmonic?
Although it is a relatively small country of fewer than nine million people, Austria has a musical tradition that is virtually unmatched by any other country. Johann Strauss, Franz Schubert, Joseph Haydn, and, of course, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are just a few of the giants of music that the country produced. It is little wonder, then, that the country's silver bullion coin celebrates the Vienna Philharmonic, the nation's capital's famous orchestra. Continuing a series that began in 2008, this coin was struck at the Austrian Mint from 1 oz of .999 fine silver and remains in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Exquisite Pipe Organ Design by Thomas Pesendorfer
Both faces of this coin bear designs by Thomas Pesendorfer. On the obverse is the pipe organ of the Wiener Musikverein concert hall. The hall is home to the world famous Vienna Philharmonic. The Philharmonic is the pride of Austria, a country steeped in musical tradition. Just under the organ are inscriptions of the coin's weight, "1 UNZE FEINSILBER," and date, "2020." The name of the issuing country, "REPUBLIK OSTERREICH," arches over the organ along the rim. At the bottom of this face is an inscription of the coin's face value, "1,50 EURO."
Pesendorfer's reverse design consists of several of the instruments that are played in the Philharmonic. At the center is a cello. It is joined by a Viennese horn, a harp, four violins, and, representing the woodwind section, a bassoon. Between two of the instruments at the top is a notation of the coin's metal, "SILBER." The name of the celebrated orchestra, "WIENER PHILHARMONIKER," spreads throughout the top half of the rim.
