The Great Organ located in the Musikverein concert hall’s Golden Hall is the focus of the obverse of the series. The Musikverein is the home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

A collection of orchestral instruments including a cello, violins, a harp, a bassoon, and a French horn adorn the reverse of the series.

Thomas Pesendorfer, the now-retired, longtime chief engraver of the Austrian Mint, designed both the obverse and reverse of the coin.

History of the Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins

The Gold Philharmonic series was first struck in 1989. Many numismatists hold that the series boasts one of the most attractive designs of any modern bullion series. The coins begin with a 1/25 oz. size and go up to 1 oz., though a larger 20 oz. size was struck in 2009 and a massive 1000 oz. “Big Phil” was struck in 2004. At the time, the “Big Phil” was the largest gold coin in the world. The series is struck on .9999 fine, 24 karat gold planchets by the world-famous Austrian Mint. The mint guarantees each Gold Philharmonic for weight and purity. The coins are legal tender in Austria and have a face value in denominated in Euros.

Austrian Mint Background

The Austrian Mint first started striking silver coins in 1194. The mint strikes Euro coinage for circulation in Austria and operates as a contract mint for smaller countries that do not possess their own mint operations.

They strike several collectible Numismatic and bullion products including gold bars, medals, and coins that typically feature musical and cultural themes. They are also responsible for striking the collector favorites: the Silver Maria Theresa Thaler and the Austrian Gold Ducat and Gold Corona Restrikes.

A Note About Mintage Levels

It is worth noting that the series had some lower mintages in the first years of issuance. Mintages ballooned along with the popularity of the series for several years. For the last few years the mintage numbers have been subdued, making serious collectors take note.
