  • Description:

    The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra has been around since 1842 and is considered the best in the world. Offering music lovers a different experience than the usual orchestra performance, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra uses a wider variety of instruments that make a deeper, richer sound than what audiences are used to. Apart from the grueling auditions, among the best musicians in Austria, the orchestra itself is a commitment many musicians would love to make. When Austria decided to mint a bullion coin, representative of the country, there was no question that the theme would revolve around the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Instead of portraying a nation's leader, the Austrian Mint decided to honor the orchestra that has helped the nation's economy and also gave the country something to be proud of for years to come.

    Thomas Pesendorfer was the Austrian artist, who designed the Austrian Gold Philharmonic, in 1989. Pesendorfer views coin engraving as more of a craft rather than art. The art is what the coin is portraying, whether it be a person, animal, or in this case, an instrument. The famous pipe organ, that stands in the great hall, where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra plays, is displayed on the obverse of every Philharmonic coin. The obverse is also marked with the Republic of Austria and the coin's weight, of 1/4 ounce. The reverse is stamped with Vienna Philharmonic and an assortment of the instruments used in the Vienna Orchestra. These instruments include the flute, bassoon, harp, cello, violin, and French horn. These designs don't change every year but that hasn't stopped serious collectors' interest in this series. Your 1/4 ounce Austrian Philharmonic is guaranteed to weigh 1/4 ounce of .9999 pure gold and is in brilliant uncirculated condition.
