Orchestra, live music performances have a rich tradition in Austria. Prior to the 1830s, it was common to experience public orchestral performances in Vienna by orchestras cobbled together with a mixture of professional and amateur musicians. A group known as the Kunstlerverien was formed in 1833 by Franz Lachner and performed four concerts, including a Beethoven symphony. This group is widely considered the forerunner to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which was formed nine years later in 1842.
All of the 2021 1/2 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins available here are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins will ship either individually inside of plastic flips or in mint tubes for multiples of 10 gold coins.
In the obverse design element, the 2021 Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin offers a view of the Great Pipe Organ inside of the Musikverein. The home venue for the orchestra in the city of Vienna, the Musikverein is also known as the Golden Concert Hall and is located in the Innere Stadt neighborhood of the city.
For the reverse design of 2021 1/2 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin, the Austrian Mint depicts a cluster of musical instruments reflective of those used by members of the orchestra. This design element includes a Vienna horn, a bassoon, a harp, and four violins all centered on a large cello.
Members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra are all professional musicians chosen from the ranks of the Vienna State Opera. The selection process is lengthy and involves demonstrating skill and possessing a minimum of three years of performance experience in opera and ballet.
