Founded in 1842 as a formal performance unit, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is nothing less than a national treasure and source of pride for the people of Austria. The orchestra may have formally began to perform as a unit in 1842, but as early as the 1830s there were orchestral performances taking place in Vienna in the same building which would eventually house the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
Today, the 2018 Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coin is one of three options available to European and global investors who covet this stunning design. The Silver Philharmonic is, itself, based upon the 1989 release of the Gold Austrian Philharmonic. Those original designs were created by Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint, Thomas Pesendorfer. In 2008, the Silver Philharmonic Coin joined the program, followed in 2016 by the Platinum Philharmonic Coin.
On the obverse of all 2018 1 oz Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coins is an image of the interior of the Golden Hall. Better known to locals as the Musikverein, the Golden Hall is situated in the borough of Innere Stadt in Vienna, the national capital of Austria. Engravings on this face of the coin include the nation of issue, weight, metal content, year of issue, and face value in German.
The reverse of 2018 Silver Philharmonic Coins listed here includes a selection of musical instruments which includes the harp, violin, cello, flute, bassoon, and a French horn. The name of the orchestra is featured here in German, with a gilded layer of 24-karat gold found on select instruments in the design field.
The Austrian Mint opened its doors in 1195 under the control of Duke Leopold V. Only a handful of mints, such as the London Mint (now Royal Mint) and the Paris Mint have deeper histories within modern-day Europe.
