Produced by the Austrian Mint, the Austrian Philharmonic Series celebrates the cultural importance within Austria and Europe of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The Vienna Philharmonic was formed in 1842 and is one of the world’s oldest orchestral groups still performing today. The Austrian Philharmonic Series started in 1989 with gold coins, expanding in 2008 with a 1 oz silver coin and again in 2016 and 2017 to include 1 oz and 1/10 oz platinum coins, respectively.

On the obverse of 2022 Gold Austrian Philharmonics is a depiction of the pipe organ inside the Musikverein in Veinna. The Musikverein is one of the most beloved orchestra halls in the world and is famed for its acoustics. The pipe organ currently installed in the building was put in in 1907 and recently refurbished in 2011.
The reverse side of the 2022 1/4 oz Gold Philharmonic comes with a collage of various musical instruments. This design, as well as the obverse design, was created by Thomas Pesendorfer, the Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint. The image shows a cello in the center with violins, a bassoon, a harp, and a French horn.
