The Gold Vienna Philharmonic was first minted in 1989 by the Austrian Mint in Vienna. These Gold Bullion coins are 99.99% pure 24-karat gold. They have a nominal value stamped on the coin and can be used as legal tender.
The true value of the coin is directly tied to the spot price of gold, just as the Silver Philharmonic is attached to the spot price of silver. The actual value of the gold coin may be as high as 10,000 times greater over the face value.
Inspired by the well known Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra the coin has the great organ in the Golden Hall in Vienna’s concert hall on one side and a cluster of musical instruments on the other. Along with the organ you will find the date and 100 Euros, for the 1 oz coin, along the bottom of the coin. Prior to 2002 the face value was in Austrian Shillings. This makes the Gold Vienna Philharmonic a very unique coin, as it is one of the few coins in the world that have been minted and circulated with two different currency values. Above the instruments it reads “WIENER PHILHARMORIKER”. The instruments depicted are a horn, bassoon, harp, four violins and one middle cello. Designed by chief engraver Thomas Pesendorfer the coin was offered first in October 1989. The Gold Philharmonic was recognized as the “best-selling coin in the world” in the years of 1992, 1995, 1996 and 2000, by the World Gold Council.
More than 8.2 million Vienna Philharmonic coins were entered into circulation between 1989 and 2004. This represents 5.6 million ounces of gold. The Gold Vienna Philharmonic is now the only European Gold bullion coin with face value in Euros.
