Why does this Brilliant Uncirculated 2023 1 oz. Silver Austrian Philharmonic coin belong in your collection?
The Austrian Mint introduced the Silver Vienna Philharmonic series in 2008. The coin was the first .999 fine silver legal tender bullion coin to be issued in Europe with a denomination in Euros. The design of the coin, which is dedicated to the world renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, is adapted from the gold variety of the coin, which has been annually issued in multiple weights since 1989. The coin's distinctive imagery is the work of Austrian sculptor Thomas Pesendorfer, the Mint's Chief Engraver from 1993 until 2016. In March 2022, Mr. Pesendorfer was presented with the prestigious COTY (Coin of the Year) Lifetime Achievement Award.
