The 1/25 oz Gold Philharmonic is the most recent addition to the Gold Philharmonic range having been introduced by the Austrian Mint in 2014. The 2014 date mark was the 25th anniversary for the series, and as such, the Austrian Mint celebrated with the unique release of a commemorative 1/25 Troy ounce version of the coin. However, this weight proved so popular that it was added to the collection on a permanent basis alongside the 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz fractional coins.
Other examples of commemorative issues of the Gold Philharmonic include the Big Phil and a 20 ounce Gold Philharmonic. The Big Phil issue was released in 2004 on the 15th anniversary of the series. Only 15 of these coins were issued, each one with 1,000 Troy ounce of .9999 fine gold. In 2009, a 20 ounce Gold Philharmonic was issued to mark the 20th anniversary of the series. A total of 6,027 coins were released, with a mintage of 2,009 coins available to each of the US, European, and Japanese markets for the coin.
The obverse of the 2021 1/25 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic Coins includes a depiction of the Great Pipe Organ at the Musikverein. Known as the Golden Hall, the Musikverein was completed in 1870 and built on land gifted to the project by Emperor Franz Joseph I of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
