The Austrian Vienna Philharmonic gold coin has been produced in Vienna since 1989, where its monetary face value is still regarded as one of the highest among gold bullion coins. Prior to the implementation of the Euro, the coin was expressed in Austria’s national currency, the Schilling. The World Gold Council declared the Austrian Philharmonic gold coin as a global bestseller in 1992, 1995 and 1996.

Why buy Austrian Philharmonic Gold Coins?

Apart from the fact you are purchasing a coin that is considered as one of the most beautiful in its class, the Austrian Philharmonic Gold coin has also been marked as a high-value investment, since it is now the only regularly-issued bullion coin denominated in Euros.

The coins have garnered praise from investors and collectors alike. Subsequently, the strength in value increased since it became the only bullion coin to carry monetary value in Euros. Due to its value, the Austrian Philharmonic Gold Coin has become a concomitant of the Austrian Mint.

The market price of the coin operates as their functioning value when used in an investment portfolio. In a sales transaction, a premium would be added to the market value and accounts for coinage and distribution costs. In terms of its intrinsic value, the value oscillates daily in accordance with the gold spot prices.

Design of Austrian Vienna Philharmonic Gold Coins

Austrian Philharmonic coins are identified by their distinctive design which includes a collection of orchestral instruments associated with Vienna’s world-renowned orchestra, namely four violins, a bassoon, a cello, a Vienna horn, and a harp. An inscription in German that reads WIENER PHILHARMONIKER (“Vienna Philharmonic”) can also be seen on this side.

On its reverse, an image of the Great Organ inside of the concert hall where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs, is visible along with etchings of its country of issue, weight, legal tender value in Euros, and the coin’s purity.

It should be noted that the face value does not reflect the actual value of the Philharmonic coins. The price for purchasing and selling is calculated in accordance with the current spot price.
