1/10 OZ GOLD philharmonic 1996:
3.11 of pure gold
The Austrian gold philharmonic coins are one of the best-selling items in Europe. Introduced in 1989, these gold coins are among the few coins in Europe that started with face values expressed in a national currency and are now presented as the only European coin with the common currency of the euro zone (euros). The Austrian 1/4 oz gold philharmonic coin from 2018 is now available online and can be purchased from JM Bullion.
Issued with a face value of 200 Schillings by Austria.
The obverse includes the Musikverein pipe organ in the Golden Music Hall.
The reverse features a variety of musical instruments.
The two designs are from the chief engraver of the Austrian Mint, Thomas Pesendorfer.
The Austrian philharmonic coin series has undergone several changes since 1989. Even though the designs of the obverse and the reverse have remained the same, the options for investors and collectors only increased during that period. The programme started that year with the 1 oz coin and these Austrian philharmonic gold oz coins.
Since then, 5 additions to the programme and a one-time issue on the occasion of the 15th anniversary have tipped the balance decisively. The first expansion was the 1/10 oz gold coin in 1991, followed by the oz coin in 1994. The final addition of gold took place in 2014 with the introduction of the 1/25 oz gold philharmonic coin.
However, the series added a Silver Philharmonic coin in 2008 and a platinum Philharmonic coin in 2016. Moreover, an Austrian 1000 OZ Troy gold Philharmonic coin was introduced in 2004 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the coin series. . The coin had a nominal value of 100,000 (euros) and was 10 times larger and 1,000 times heavier than the traditional 1 oz coin.
The obverse of the 1996 Austrian gold Philharmonic Orchestra coin features the image of the Musikverein. This magnificent organ is found in the Golden Music Hall of Innere Stadt, the district of Vienna, where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs.
On the reverse of the 1996 Austrian gold Philharmonic coin, one can find the image of nine different instruments used by the members of the Vienna orchestra. A centre cello is surrounded by the other instruments which include a Vienna horn, a bassoon, a harp and four violins in total.
