The Gold Austrian Philharmonics debuted over the course of several years. The 1989 release of the coins included a 1 oz gold coin and 1/4 oz gold coin. In 1991, the Austrian Mint issued the 1/10 oz gold coin for the first time. The 1/2 oz gold coin was the last of the traditional fractional-ounce coins introduced with its 1994 debut. In 2014, the Austrian Mint marked the 25th anniversary of the series with the release of a 1/25 oz gold coin. It proved so popular, the mint left the coin in the regular release schedule each year.
A depiction of the Great Organ is found on the obverse face of the 2021 1 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonics. This musical instrument is built into the structure of the Golden Concert Hall, or Musikverein, the hall in which the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs in the capital city of Austria.
There is a collection of eight musical instruments in the reverse design of 2021 Gold Austrian Philharmonics. The design field includes a large cello at the center that features two violins on either side. The background field features a French horn, a bassoon, and a harp.
The Austrian Mint produces the Gold Austrian Philharmonics as of 2002 with face values of Euro, replacing the previously issued Gold Philharmonics with Austrian Schillings as the face value. The Austrian Mint is authorized to produce Euro currencies for the Eurozone, but the face value of these Gold Philharmonics is considered legal tender only in Austria and not throughout the Eurozone.
