Gold Austrian Philharmonics debuted in 1989 at the Austrian Mint. The obverse and reverse designs on the coins were designed by Thomas Pesendorfer, the Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint. The gold bullion coins in the series started in 1989 with 1 oz gold and 1/4 oz gold. In 1991, the first expansion came with the addition of a 1/10 oz gold coin. In 1994, these 1/2 oz gold coins were introduced. The gold series was completed in 2014 with the introduction of a 1/25 oz gold coin.
All of these 2022 1/2 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonics are available to you for purchase individually or in bulk. When you order nine or fewer coins, each one will come in an individual plastic flip. Multiples of 10 coins in this weight are available in plastic tubes.
On the obverse side of 2022 Gold Austrian Philharmonics is an image of the grand pipe organ from inside the Golden Concert Hall at the Musikverein. The Musikverein is one of the world’s most revered concert centers and its pipe organ was first installed in 1872, with the current pipe organ installed in 1907. The most recent refurbishment of the pipe organ came in 2011.
The reverse field of 2022 1/2 oz Gold Philharmonics features an image of musical instruments. Though the members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra use a variety of instruments during concerts, this design element features a collection of five different instruments. There is a large cello in the central foreground, with four violins flanking the cello in pairs of two. In the background, you will find a French horn, a bassoon, and a harp.
