The concert hall is known as the Musikverein and is the home concert hall of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra where it performs for crowds. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1842, but organized philharmonic concerts took place in Vienna as early as one decade prior.
The reverse of 2020 Platinum Austrian Philharmonic Coins bears the design of musical instruments. These instruments are commonly used by the members of the Philharmonic Orchestra and it includes a cello, four violins, a bassoon, a harp, and a French horn. Inscriptions on the obverse and reverse of the coin are in German, the official language of Austria.
All 2020 Platinum Austrian Philharmonic Coins are available from the Austrian Mint. Founded in 1194, the first silver produced from the mint actually came from King Richard I of England. Returning home from the Crusades, he was held captive in Austria by Duke Leopold V and only freed after paying a ransom of 15 tonnes of silver.
