Gold Philharmonic coins are produced by the Austrian Mint to honor the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Founded in 1842, the history of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra dates back much further. As early as 1833, orchestral performances took place in Vienna and were done by ad hoc orchestras.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin you’ll find the image of the Musikverein Pipe Organ. Located inside of the Golden Music Hall, it is a fixture within the home theater of the Vienna Philharmonic and is situated in the Innere Stadt neighborhood of Vienna.
The reverse of all Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins features a selection of musical instruments. The instruments found in the design of this coin are commonly used by the members of the orchestra and include a Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, and four violins with a massive cello in the center. Engravings on both faces of the coin are done in German, the official language of Austria.
