If you are looking for a high-quality investment coin, then you have found it in the 1 ounce Philharmonic gold coin, which has fast become the most successful investment coin in Europe.
It’s interesting to note that in November 1998, Austria changed its law and began issuing pure gold coins for investment purposes. This paved way for an idea of designing a coin with symbols from their country – not just any ordinary coin but one designed by musicians who are famous all over the world: The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra!
The Austrian Mint’s chief engraver, Thomas Pesendorfer created the design that has remained unchanged since 1989.
The obverse side of the Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin includes a depiction of the Great Organ, a large pipe organ from Vienna’s Golden Concert Hall. The Viennese Musikverein is where both classical and contemporary performances are held for audiences in Austria. Above the great instrument which sits at centre stage, reads REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH Underneath these words sit weight (1 UNZE GOLD), purity (.999 9/10) and the date issued – 2021.
The legal tender value of the coin is 100 Euros. It has a diameter of 37mm and a thickness of 2mm.
