When you say the word ‘philharmonic,’ something musical springs to mind. Rightfully so. The term philharmonic is associated with orchestra and symphony – beautiful music. For gold bullion investors, Philharmonic means a beautiful gold coin from Austria commemorating that nation’s rich history in music.
The coin features Vienna’s famed Musikverein Concert Hall, home of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra. Conductors such as Hans Richter and Gustav Mahler have led performances there in the city of Mozart and Beethoven. When classical music historians and aficionados refer to the “philharmonic”, they are likely referring to Vienna’s great symphony.
As for the Philharmonic gold coin, the idea was to incorporate the grace and style of its namesake into the design. And it turned out spectacularly.
When it was introduced in 1989, it was the first European gold bullion coin designed for investment to go into production. Since then, the gold Philharmonic has established itself with investors, recognized and trusted throughout the world.
Now the Philharmonic is available in a 1/25th oz size - within reach of investors regardless of their budget and ideal for people who want small gold for barter and trade.
Let’s go back further though and examine the history and creation of this coin.
Gold Philharmonics are available in 5 sizes. The range includes the more popular 1-ounce gold coin, but it also includes the ½-ounce, ¼-ounce, 1/10-ounce versions and 1/25-ounce varieties. All of the coins for sale are minted from .9999 pure gold, and are marked with their weight and purity. The 1-ounce coin is denominated as 100 euro. The 1/2-ounce coin has a face value of 50 euro, the ¼-ounce is 25 euro, 1/10-ounce is 10 euro coin and the 1/25-ounce is a 4 euro coin.
The Austrian Mint also produces a silver version of the coin in a 1-ounce size, denominated as 1.5 euro.
Anyone holding an Austrian gold Philharmonic coin can tell it has been thoughtfully designed. It commemorates the Vienna Philharmonic with beauty and craftsmanship.
The reverse side of the coin features some of the instruments which take center stage in many orchestras. These include a cello, a bassoon, a Vienna horn, and a harp. On either side of the cello are 2 violas and then 2 violins. Above these instruments is a banner which reads ‘Wiener Philharmoniker,’ the original German name of the orchestra.
On the obverse of the coin, rather than instruments there is architecture, and one additional grand instrument. There is an artist’s representation of the balcony of the Musikverein Concert Hall, also known as the Golden Hall. Standing upon it is the hall’s famous pipe organ. Around this image there is scripting which reads ‘Republik Osterreich‘ along with the coins weight and purity. For the coin weighing 1/25 troy ounce the text reads ‘1/25 Unze Gold 999.9’ and the denomination as ‘4 Euro’. The year the coin was minted is located between the two latter details.
The design is from Thomas Pesendorfer who sat as the head of the Austrian Mint. The only change in his design was the addition of the ring around the edge, referred to as an edge rod. The inclusion of this slightly raised ring on the face of the coin allowed it to be stacked easier in production.
The gold Philharmonic offers a unique design and the trust that accompanies an official legal tender coin whose weight and purity is guaranteed by the Austrian government. The coin is a great value, sold at just a few percent above its melt value. And it is liquid – easy to buy and easy to sell instantly when the time comes. It will make a worthy addition to any gold investors holding.

These coins may be small, but they are as beautiful as the larger Austrian Philharmonic Gold Pieces. The small size fits smaller budgets, and allows for stacking up some gold!
