Austrian Philharmonic coins are the official bullion coins of the Republic of Austria. The nation’s sovereign mint, the Austrian Mint, first struck the coins in 1989 as gold bullion coins with two weights to choose from when buying.

Each 2019 1/25 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coin in this product listing is available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are struck by the Austrian Mint and issued with either individual protective packaging or mint tubes of 20 coins. The 2019 date mark is bound to be popular in the future as it marks the 30th anniversary of the Gold Philharmonic’s introduction in 1989.
Although the 2019 Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coin celebrates 30 years of production this year, the 1/25 oz coin has not been available for this entire period. The 1989 introduction included only a 1 oz and 1/4 oz coin. In 1991, the mint added the 1/10 oz coin and a 1/2 oz coin was issued in 1994.
These 1/25 oz Gold Philharmonics debuted in 2014 and were issued in this weight as a nod to the 25th-anniversary celebration for the series. The popularity of the coins led the Austrian Mint to maintain regular production and issuance of the 1/25 oz coin.
On the obverse of 2019 1/25 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonics is an interior view of the Golden Concert Hall in the Innere Stadt neighborhood of Vienna, the capital of Austria. The design focuses on the Great Organ that plays a central role in various Vienna Philharmonic performances.
The reverse side of 2019 Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coins features a collection of musical instruments. The instruments depicted here are among the most commonly used by the members of the orchestra and include a cello, violin, harp, bassoon, flute, and a horn. Engravings on both sides of the coin identify weight, purity, metal content, nation of issue, face value, date of issue, and the Philharmonic Orchestra in German lettering, the native tongue of Austria.
