The Austrian Mint introduced the Austrian Philharmonic coin series in 1989 with a Gold Philharmonic option. These original coins feature a design from Austrian Mint Chief Engraver Thomas Pesendorfer. The coins were initially issued with Austrian Shillings before the 2002 adoption of the Euro as a common currency in the economic group of nations in the European Union.
In 2008, the mint introduced the Austrian Silver Philharmonic coin. Available in 1 oz silver, these coins mark 10 years of availability in 2018. In addition to the typical 1 oz silver bullion coin, the Austrian Silver Philharmonic coins are also available in gilded and colorized options. The colorized application includes lacquer that brings the designs to life. In the case of these coins, the colorization appears on the reverse only.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Colorized Austrian Silver Philharmonic Coin is the design of the musical instruments used by the Vienna Philharmonic. Included in the design are instruments such as the cello, bassoon, Vienna horn, harp, and four violins. The colorization added on this side brings the wood of the cello and violins to life with brilliant hues for the Vienna horn and bassoon in the background.
The obverse of the Colorized Austrian Silver Philharmonic Coin includes the pipe organ from the Musikverein. Known as the Golden Hall, this theater hosts the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra for its performances. It is located in the Innere Stadt neighborhood of Vienna where the orchestra has performed since 1843.
The Austrian Mint was founded in 1194 by Duke Leopold V with a payment of silver from Englands Richard the Lionheart. The 15 tonnes of silver was a payment for safe passage through Austria for Richard and his troops returning from the Crusades.
