About the Austria 1 Oz Gold Philharmonic


The Austrian Gold Philharmonic (also just called the ‘Philharmonic’ for short) is one of the most popular and recognized one-ounce gold coins in the world. This coin is a great choice for many investors, but is especially beneficial to those who reside or do business in Europe, where the Austrian Mint's reputation is cemented.

Here are some highlights of this coin:

  • Coin weighs 1 troy ounce of .9999 fine gold bullion.
  • Manufactured by the Austrian Mint in Austria.
  • One of the most popular & recognized gold coins in the world.
  • Legal tender coin with value of 100 Euro.
  • Legal tender status means government actively pursues counterfeiters to protect the integrity of the coin supply.
  • A standard bullion coin.

 

This Gold Philharmonic is known as a bullion coin. In other words, the coin is produced in quantity and isn’t a collectible coin by design, thus carrying a low premium over its metal value. Many investors desire this ‘standard’ feature because it means they have a straightforward investment play on the price of gold rising.

The Austrian Philharmonic is a legal tender coin, its value officially set at 100 Euros (although the market price is much higher than that; similarly, an American Gold Eagle's legal tender value is just $50!). The practical benefit of legal tender status, however, is that is weight & purity is guaranteed by the Austrian Government. Also the government actively seeks out would be counterfeiters.

Many investors & collectors alike also love this coin for it’s beauty. The front of the Philharmonic, or obverse, features instruments from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The cello is front and center, violins to either side, and harp, bassoon, and french horn behind. At the top of the coin are inscribed the words “Wiener Philharmoniker,” which is German for "Vienna Philharmonic." This is why the coin is often referred to as simply the “Philharmonic”.

The reverse, or back side, shows the Great Organ of Austria's most famous concert hall. Stamped around this is information, in German, relating to the coin's origin, face value, weight, and purity: “REPUBLIK OSTERREICH,” meaning the Republic of Austria; “1 UNZE Gold 999.9,” or 1 Ounce Gold 99.99%; the year of minting; and “100 EURO,” its legal tender value.

The Austrian Mint is well known and has an established reputation for quality throughout the world. The Austrian Mint also has a long and illustrious history that dates back to the 12th Century. In 1194, Richard the Lionheart of England paid a ransom to Duke Leopold V of Austria. Leopold had the silver struck into coins, thereby unofficially founding the Austrian Mint.
