Each of the individual 2019 1 oz Colorized Austrian Silver Philharmonic Coins available to you today is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and comes with a protective capsule to house the product. These coins are bullion versions of the popular Silver Philharmonic coins with colorization added by a third-party authorized dealer.
The colorization is achieved through the application of layers of colorized lacquer. In the case of these silver coins for sale, the colorization is added only to the instruments on the reverse side. The colorization does nothing to diminish the purity or condition of the silver, it is merely used to highlight certain elements of the coin’s design.
On the obverse of 2019 Colorized Austrian Silver Philharmonic Coins is the image of the Great Organ. This massive musical instrument is a central fixture of the Musikverein Golden Hall, which is located in the Vienna neighborhood of Innere Stadt and is home to the majority of Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performances in Austria.
The reverse design field of the 2019 1 oz Colorized Austrian Silver Philharmonic Coin includes a cluster of eight musical instruments in total. There is a cello in the center that is flanked on either side by two violins. In the background, you’ll find a large harp, a bassoon, and a French horn.
It is on the reverse side that all colorization has been added. The cello and violins, along with the frame of the harp, have beautiful wooden hues added to reflect their real-world appearance. The French horn as a bright brass color and the bassoon has black-and-gold colorization.
All Austrian Silver Philharmonic coins are produced by the Austrian Mint, the sovereign mint of the Republic of Austria. All inscriptions on the coins are in German and the designs were created in 1989 for the gold version of the coins by Thomas Pesendorfer, Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint.
