Early History

The Philharmonic series began in 1989 with gold coins, initially valued in Austrian Schillings before switching to euros in 2002. These coins are available in multiple sizes, including the unique 1/25-ounce. A notable release was the "Big Phil" in 2004, a 1,000-ounce gold coin issued to mark the 15th anniversary of the series.

Introduction of the Silver Philharmonic

The Silver Philharmonic was introduced on February 1, 2008. The Austrian Mint struck around 7.77 million coins in its first year. Unlike its gold counterparts, the Silver Philharmonic is only available in a 1-ounce size, with a fixed diameter of 37 mm and a thickness of 3.2 mm. Each coin weighs exactly 31.103 grams and is composed of 99.9% pure silver.


Designed by Thomas Pesendorfer, the obverse of the Silver Philharmonic features the grand pipe organ from the Musikverein, home of the Vienna Philharmonic. The inscriptions include “REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH,” the coin’s face value, “1 UNZE FEINSILBER,” and the year of issuance. The reverse showcases a collection of musical instruments, including a cello, violins, a harp, a flute, a French horn, and a bassoon, with the inscriptions “WIENER PHILHARMONIKER” and “SILBER.”


The Austrian Philharmonic Silver Coin has gained worldwide recognition and popularity since its inception, making it a valuable addition to any bullion collection. With nearly 100 million coins sold, the “Silver Phil” continues to attract both collectors and investors alike.

    Nice design
    Being a string person, liked the design of the instrument's. The quality of the coin is above average except for the little nick's on the top edge of the coin. The writing on the coin is in Austrian, thus 1 unze feinsilber . I Like the coin, might order again if price comes down.
