The Vienna Philharmonic is widely regarded as one of the finest orchestras in the world today. The group was originally formed in 1842, and today it performs concerts at the Musikverein Golden Hall in the nation’s capital city of Vienna. The government of Austria pays homage to the orchestra with its official silver bullion coin, the Silver Austrian Philharmonic. Although a relatively new coin, the Silver Austrian Philharmonic is the highest minted and most popular in Europe. This 2012 1 oz Silver Austrian Philharmonic coin is available in brilliant uncirculated condition.

The Silver Austrian Philharmonic coin series was launched in 2008. The design in use on the silver bullion coin matches that used on the Gold Austrian Philharmonic coins, in production since 1989. Thomas Pesendorfer designed both sides of the coin. On one side he selected the pipe organ from inside the Musikverein in Vienna. On the other, he chose a variety of musical instruments to represent the orchestra’s famous sound.

On the obverse side of the 2012 1 oz Silver Austrian Philharmonic is the pipe organ from the Musikverein. The design is surrounded by engravings that include the year of minting and face value, in euros, of the coin. Additional engravings include the German words “REPUBLIK OSTERREICH” and “1 UNZE FEINSILBER.” Translated into English, these phrases mean “Republic of Austria” and “1 ounce pure silver.”

The reverse side of the coin features a cornucopia of musical instruments played by members of the Vienna Philharmonic. Among the instruments are a harp, violin, bassoon, and French horn. Engravings on this side of the coin include “WEINER PHILHARMONIKER” and “SILBER.” Translated into English, these phrases mean “Vienna Philharmonic” and “Silver.”

Legend says that Duke Leopold VI of Austria founded the Austrian Mint in 1194 with 15 tonnes of silver he extracted from England’s King Richard the Lionheart as a ransom. King Richard was held hostage in Austria by the Duke during his return from the crusades, and was forced to pay for his freedom before continuing his journey. Today, the mint is the primary facility responsible for producing circulation and commemorative coins for the government.

Besides buying Philharmonics in single quantities, investors also enjoy purchasing sealed tubes and monster boxes which are shipped for orders with 20 or 500 coins respectively. All orders for this coin will be shipped as quickly as possible and will be mailed in secured and discreet packages.

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.

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.
