The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is a cultural institution in the Republic of Austria that predates the modern state by nearly a century. Founded during the Habsburg Dynasty in the Austrian Empire, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra was formally established in 1842. Today, it performs at the Musikverein.
The Musikverein stands alongside the Konzerthaus in Berlin, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and Symphony Hall in Boston as one of the finest concert halls in the world. Like the orchestra itself, the Musikverein predates the modern state. Former Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria gifted the land for the Musikverein in 1863 and its construction was completed in 1870.
On the obverse of 2021 1/4 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins is a depiction of the Great Pipe Organ within the Musikverein. While the building itself is the original from 1870, the current Great Pipe Organ is the second iteration of a pipe organ installed and used in the concert hall. The first pipe organ was installed in 1872, while the present-day Great Pipe Organ was installed in 1907.
The reverse field of the 2021 Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin includes a variety of musical instruments. Commonly used by the members of the orchestra, these include a cello, four violins, a bassoon, a harp, and a Vienna horn. The members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra are all professional musicians who undergo a lengthy selection process and must have at least three years of experience in opera and ballet. The members are chosen from the ranks of the Vienna State Opera.
These 2021 1/4 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Individual gold coins come in plastic flips, with multiples of 20 housed in mint tubes of 20.
