The Silver Philharmonic was preceded by its gold counterpart by 19 years. TheGold Philharmonic Coin was first minted by the Austrian Mint in 1989.
It is no surprise to silver bullion collectors that the Austrian Mint is known for its long tradition of minting some of the world's best quality precious metal items as the present-day mint location has been producing coins for over a century. The history of this mint, however, goes back far longer than that, with the oldest historical documents pointing as early as 1194 to the existence of an Austrian Mint.
The design on the front of the Silver Philharmonic Coin features the Great Organ of the Golden Hall in the Musikverein, Vienna’s music hall. Above the organ are the words “REPUBLIK OSTERREICH” and below it are the words “1 UNZE FEINSILBER” which translates to ‘Republic of Austria’ and ‘1 ounce fine silver’ respectively. The year of issue and the monetary denomination are also shown here.
On the reverse of this year’s Silver Philharmonic, we once again see a design featuring an arrangement of wind and string instruments you would commonly find in an orchestra including a cello, violin, Vienna horn, bassoon, and harp. Bordering the top of the coin are the words “WIENER PHILHARMONIKER” which is the native German name for the Vienna Philharmonic.
Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coins come from one of the world's oldest operating mints, enabling silver bullion enthusiasts to own a slice of history and giving investors another .999 purity coin that offers an exceptional future investment potential.
