How Much Gold is in a Gold Philharmonic Coin?

The Vienna Philharmonic or Austrian Gold Coin Philharmonic are minted in gold, silver, and platinum bullion by the Austrian Mint (Münze Österreich AG).

Gold Philharmonics is 0.9999% (99.99%) pure or 24 carats fine and the coin weighs exactly one troy ounce. This means there is exactly one troy ounce of gold in every coin.

Like all bullion coins, the coin has an intrinsic value that is based primarily on the precious metal content and the spot price of that precious metal on international markets.

Gold Philharmonics - History, Mintage, and Design

It is named after the world famous Vienna Philharmonic orchestra (Wiener Philharmoniker), which inspires the design of both sides of the coins. The one troy ounce (1 oz) gold version was first introduced in 1989 with a face value of 2,000 Austrian schillings and remains one of the world's best selling bullion coins.

In 2002, after the adoption of the euro in Austria, the nominal value of the one ounce coin was changed to €100. In 2008, the Mint introduced a one-ounce silver version of the coin with a nominal value of €1.50. In 2016, the mint introduced a one ounce platinum coin with a face value of €100.

Philharmonics are minted according to global demand and thus production levels or mintage changes from to year to year. While the year of issue changes every year, the beautiful design on the coin remains the same every year.

From the outset, the front or obverse of it depicts the pipe organ in the Vienna Music Golden Hall. The reverse of the coin shows instruments of the Vienna Philharmonic, including Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, and four violins centered on a cello. Both designs were created by Thomas Pesendorfer who is the chief engraver of the Austrian Mint.

GoldCore only sells gold coins from trusted government mints such as The Royal Mint, The U.S. Mint, The South African Mint, The Royal Canadian Mint, The Perth Mint and The Austrian Mint.
