Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins were the first introduced in the broader series that also includes silver and platinum bullion options. The 1 oz and 1/4 oz coins debuted first in 1989 and were followed first by the 1/10 oz coin in 1991. These 1/2 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins did not debut from the mint until 1994.
All Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins, with the exception of the 1/25 oz coin, debuted with .999 pure gold content and a face value in Austrian shillings. In 2002 as Austria joined the European Unions common currency zone, the Austrian shilling was dropped on the coins in favor of the euro. However, Austrian Gold Philharmonics do not hold legal tender status throughout the EU as they do in Austria.
On the obverse of 2019 1/2 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins is the image of the organ within the Musikverein. Also known as the Golden Concert Hall, this is the primary location for Vienna Philharmonic performances in the national capital city of Vienna. The organ is often referred to as the Great Organ.
The reverse of 2019 Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins includes a design of musical instruments commonly used by the members of the orchestra. The design focuses on a cello in the center which is flanked on either side by two violins. The background includes a harp, flute, bassoon, and a horn.
