The Gold Philharmonic coins debuted in 1989 with 1 oz and 1/4 oz gold options for investors. The series has undergone three expansions in the gold range since that time. The first was in 1991 when the 1/10 oz gold coin was added to the collection. The next came in 1994 when these 1/2 oz gold coins were introduced. The most recent was the introduction of the 1/25 oz coin in 2014.
All sovereign bullion coin programs are unique in their own right as the designs are representative of the individual nation issuing and backing the coins. In the cast of the Gold Philharmonic, the series is unique in more ways than one. For starters, it is one of few major gold bullion programs to see its denomination changed. Originally issued from 1989 to 2001 in Austrian Schillings, the adoption of the Eurozone currency in 2002 resulted in a change in the denomination of the coins. That leads to another unique facet of the Gold Philharmonic. It is the only European bullion coin with a face value in Euros, though it is only legal tender within Austria.
The obverse side of 2021 1/2 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonics features the Great Pipe Organ. This massive, built-in musical instrument is found inside of the Musikverein, the home venue for all performances by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
On the reverse field of the 2021 Gold Austrian Philharmonic is a cluster of musical instruments. These instruments reflect those commonly used by the members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and include a cello, four violins, a bassoon, a harp, and a Vienna horn.
