Austrian Silver Philharmonic coins were introduced in 2008, nearly 20 years after its gold counterpart. The coins share the same obverse and reverse designs from the gold version of the coin, which were created in 1989 by Austrian Mint Chief Engraver Thomas Pesendorfer.
On the obverse of each 2016 Austrian Silver Philharmonic coin is the image of the pipe organ found inside the Musikvereing Golden Hall. Located in the Innere Stadt borough of Vienna, Austria, it is the home theater for the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
The reverse of all Silver Philharmonic coins includes a collection of musical instruments used during performances by the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra. The image includes a Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, four violins, and a cello.
All coins in the Austrian Silver Philharmonic collection are produced by the Austrian Mint. The mint was founded in 1194 by Duke Leopold V of Austria after he received a ransom payment of 15 tonnes of silver from England’s Richard the Lionheart to secure passage through the country for his troops returning from the Crusades in the Middle East.
