Historical Fact about the Coin:
The Austrian Philharmonic has for a while now been regarded as the best-selling bullion gold coin in Europe. Because it has been attested as one of the pure gold coins internationally, its popularity enabled it to lead sales worldwide in 1992, 1995 and 1996 and this was according to the World Gold Council.
Since its inception, the Gold Philharmonic has retained a depiction of the great pipe organ in the Vienna Musikverein’s Golden Hall on the obverse and an array of instruments, including the cello, violin, harp, Vienna horn and bassoon, on the reverse.
On February 1, 2008, a 1 oz Silver version of the coin was issued. The Silver Philharmonics feature the same designs found on the Gold Philharmonics and are made of .999 fine Silver.
The Austrian Mint decided to further expand their Philharmonic line with a 1 oz Platinum coin in 2016. The Platinum Philharmonic kept the same design as the Gold and Silver Philharmonics and is made from .9995 fine Platinum.
