The Austrian Mint released the nation’s first-ever gold bullion coin in 1989 with its Gold Austrian Philharmonic. The coin’s design came from Austrian Mint engraver Thomas Pesendorfer, and featured imagery on both sides representing the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra. Originally formed in 1842, it is one the longest running and most popular orchestras in the world today.
Gold Austrian Philharmonic coins actually debuted with only a 1 oz and ¼ oz variety available. These 1/10 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic coins were not added until 1991, at which point the Austrian Mint also released a ½ oz version of the coin.
The obverse of the Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coin includes the image of the Great Pipe Organ, which is located inside of the Musikverein Golden Hall in Vienna, which is the national capital of the nation of Austria.
On the reverse of the 2017 1/10 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coin you’ll find a selection of various musical instruments which are commonly used by members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which was formed in 1842 and is considered one of the finest orchestras in the world today.
These coins are struck on an annual basis by the Austrian Mint. Founded in 1194 by Duke Leopold V of Austria, the original precious metals produced here consisted of 15 tonnes of silver paid as ransom by England’s King Richard the Lionheart to secure safe passage for his troops returning from the Crusades in the Middle East.
