The Austrian Mint introduced the Philharmonic Coins in 1989 with the release of the Gold Philharmonic bullion coin. The gold coin was alone in the series for nearly two decades until the Silver Philharmonic was introduced in 2008. More recently, the series expanded again in 2016 with the introduction of a Platinum Philharmonic Series.
Like many other bullion coin series, the Austrian Philharmonics feature the same design on the obverse and reverse each year. All three versions of the coin have this same design, which was created back in 1989 by Thomas Pesendorfer, the Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint.

On the obverse of all Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coins is the design of the Great Organ.

The Golden Hall is located in the Innere Stadt borough of Vienna, which is the national capital of Austria.

The Austrian Mint was founded in 1194 by Duke Leopold V of Austria. He was paid 15 t onnes of silver by England’s Richard the Lionheart as a bounty for release from prison on his way back from the crusades, and Leopold V used that money to found the Austrian Mint.
