The Vienna Philharmonic is a source of national pride for the people of Austria. It comes as no surprise that this legendary orchestra was chosen by the Austrian Mint to serve as the inspiration for the nation’s official silver bullion coin. The 2008 1 oz Silver Austrian Philharmonic represents the first year of minting for the well-known coin. Despite its short existence, today the Silver Philharmonic is the highest minted and most popular silver bullion coin in continental Europe. Today, these coins are available in brilliant, uncirculated condition.

The Vienna Philharmonic was founded in 1842 and has been active since that date. Today it is considered one of the finest orchestras in the world. Members of the philharmonic perform at the Musikverein Golden Hall in the Innere Stadt borough of the nation’s capital city, Vienna. The Austrian Mint first produced the Silver Austrian Philharmonic coin in February 2008, minting 7,730,000 coins that first year.

Since then, minting levels have gone up, reaching a high point of 17,873,700 coins for the 2011 edition. The 2008 1 oz Silver Austrian Philharmonic coin has the same design that is still featured on the coins today. On one side is the image of the pipe organ found inside the Musikverein. On the other, a variety of instruments played by the members of the orchestra.

Thomas Pesendorfer’s design for the Gold Austrian Philharmonic, first issued in 1989, is used on the all Silver Austrian Philharmonic coins. On the obverse side is the depiction of the pipe organ from inside the Musikverein. Engravings on this side include the German words “REPUBLIK OSTERREICH” and “1 UNZE FEINSILBER.” Translated, these mean “Republic of Austria” and “1 ounce pure silver.” There are also engravings for the face value, in euros, and the year of minting.

On the reverse side of the coin are depictions of various instruments used by the orchestra. These images include a harp, violin, cello, flute, bassoon, and French horn. Engravings include the German words “WEINER PHILHARMONIKER’ and “SILBER.” Translated, these mean “Vienna Philharmonic” and “Silver.”

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.
