These weights have not all been issued throughout the series’ history.

Philharmonic coins debuted in 1989 with just the 1 oz and ¼ oz coins. The first coin added was the 1/10 oz coin in 1991, followed by these ½ oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coins in 1994. The latest addition was the 1/25 oz coin, which was added in 2014 on the 25th anniversary of the coin program’s debut. This explains the use of 1/25 oz weight, as a nod to the 25th anniversary.

Each ½ oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coin in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the production process at the mint.

The obverse of all Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coins includes an internal view of the Golden Hall in Innere Stadt, Vienna. This is the home theatre of the orchestra, and the pipe organ on display is known as the Musikverein Pipe Organ. Engravings on this face are in Austria’s native German tongue and include the nation of issue, face value, weight, metal content, purity, and year of issue.

On the reverse of the ½ oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coin is the image of a collection of musical instruments. The center is dominated by a large cello, which is flanked immediately by four violins, and backed in the background by a Vienna horn, bassoon, and harp.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
