The coin received it’s name from the famous Vienna Philharmonic orchestra (Wiener Philharmoniker). The 1 ounce Gold Philharmonic was introduced in 1989 and had a face value of 2,000 Austrian Shillings (ATS). In 2002, the nominal value of the 1 ounce coin was changed to 100 Euro with adoption of the Euro currency. In 2008 the mint introduced the 1 ounce Silver version of the Philharmonic with a nominal value of 1.50 Euro. The Vienna Philharmonic Silver coin has also become a best selling bullion coin. In an effort to continue to expand the precious metals product portfolio, the Austrian Mint introduced a 1 ounce platinum coin in 2016 with face value of 100 Euro.
Vienna Philharmonic gold coins are considered legal tender in Austria.
The 1/2 oz Vienna Philharmonic gold coin is good for investors who are looking for alternatives to the 1 oz size. The 2016 edition comes in mint condition, which means that it is “uncirculated” and is in near perfect condition.
Because these coins are in mint condition the 1/2 Gold Philharmonic should be kept in its protective packaging. Gold is a soft material and as a result, surface scratches can develop on pure gold coins if they are not handled with care.
