The 2016 Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coin is currently available on Silver.com with a gilded finish and Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Coin Highlights:

  • These coins feature a 24-karat gilded finish on the primary design set.

The Vienna Philharmonic orchestra was formed in the 1840s, and has performed in the national capital of Austria for over 170 years now. The orchestra is widely regarded as one of the finest in the world, and is a cultural icon for the nation.

All 2016 Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coins in this product listing have a gilded finish. Coins with a gilded finish feature a layer of 24-karat gold on the primary design sets. For these coins, that applies to the pipe organ and the cornucopia of musical instruments.

As a Brilliant Uncirculated coin, these Silver Austrian Philharmonic coins show no signs of wear and tear. You may, however, notice minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks.

On the obverse face of the coin you’ll find the image of the pipe organ within the Musikverein Golden Concert Hall. The hall is the home to orchestra performances, and is located in the Innere Stadt neighborhood of Vienna.

The reverse face features a variety of musical instruments used by members of the Vienna Philharmonic. Among the instruments you’ll see a French horn, bassoon, cello, and violins. Engravings on both sides of the coin are in German, the official language of Austria.

Duke Leopold V founded the Austrian Mint in 1194 under the most unusual circumstances. The first 15 tonnes of silver used by the mint to produce bullion products came from Richard the Lionheart of England, who paid Leopold V a ransom to allow for safe passage of his army through Austria as it returned from the Crusades in the Middle East.
