Some of the world's most well-known coins come from Austria. While the Mint itself and its name have gone through various changes, it can be traced back to the year 1194 making it one of the world's oldest Mints. One of the most popular silver coins on the world bullion market is the Austrian Silver Philharmonic. Like other sovereign silver coins, the Philharmonic is made of .999 fine silver and weighs 1 Troy oz. The Philharmonic is known around the world and is a great choice to add to your stack due to how many people know this coin. The design of the Philharmonic honors the world famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. This coin was introduced to the market in 2008 and was an instant success.
The Austrian Mint also lays claim to one of the most minted coins in the world, the silver Maria Theresa Thaler coin. This coin depicting the famous Austrian Empress has been continuously struck since 1857, although the original was struck in 1741. The modern versions of this coin are still made of silver, although the fineness is less than sterling and the total weight of the coin is just over 28 g.
On top of Philharmonics and silver Maria Theresa Thaler coins, the Austrian Mint also produces a variety of coins just for collectors. Even if all you've seen are Philharmonics, it is easy to see the level of quality that every coin from the Austrian Mint displays. Some of the Austrian coins for collectors have designs featuring Mozart, wildlife, parts of Austria, Austrian legends, and even Rome.
