The Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coin series is the official gold bullion coin of the Republic of Austria and is accompanied each year by the release of an official silver bullion and platinum bullion coin with the same designs. The images on the coins were created in 1989 by Thomas Pesendorfer, Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint.
Gold Philharmonics are unique in the series as they are the only coins in the collection that predate the adoption of the Euro among European Union members. From 1989 to 2001, all Gold Philharmonics had face values issued in Austrian schillings. Since 2002, the coins in the Gold Philharmonic range include face values in Euros. While the coins issued from 2002 onward are legal tender status, that status is recognized only within Austria and not by other nations that use the Euro currency in the EU.
On the obverse side of 2019 Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coins is a design depicting the Great Organ. This central musical instrument features in performances by the Vienna Philharmonic and is located within the Golden Concert Hall, or Musikverein, which is in the national capital of Vienna in the Innere Stadt neighborhood.
The reverse of 2019 1/4 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coins features a selection of musical instruments. Included in this design field are a cello, violins, harp, bassoon, flute, and horn. Engravings on both sides of the coin are in German.
These 2019 1/4 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coins are part of the 30th-anniversary issue of the coins. Each one is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and comes with either individual protective packaging or mint tubes of 20 coins each.
The Austrian Mint is responsible for striking the Gold Philharmonic, other bullion issues, and the nation’s Euro currency. Founded in 1195, the Austrian Mint is one of the oldest operating facilities in Europe today.
