European classical music is honoured with this silver coin featuring the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. First released in 2008, the Austrian Philharmonic Silver Coin (often simply called the ‘Philharmonic’) is one troy ounce of .999 fine silver and has a face value of 1.5 Euro, the only bullion coin with a face value in euros.
Thomas Pesendorfer first designed the coin for the gold bullion first issues in 1989, and his timeless depictions continue to be used unrevised in this silver coin. The intricate details of Vienna’s concert hall Musikverein pipe organ are carved into the obverse side of this coin, above which reads “REPUBLIK OSTERREICH” (Republic of Austria). The weight, date and value are finely displayed underneath in a quintessential Austrian font. The reverse side has a collection of Austrian instruments with “WIENER PHILHARMONIKER” (Vienna Philharmonic) in a display that will delight those discerning collectors and investors who respect design as well as value. Today, the smooth-edged silver bullion coin is the most popular silver coin in Europe and a valuable addition to the portfolio of any investor, collector or classical music lover.
