Offered annually by the Austrian Mint, the Austrian Philharmonic Series consists of gold, silver, and platinum bullion coins. The first coins issued were the gold bullion coins that launched in 1989 with 1 oz and 1/4 oz options. The series has since expanded to include three additional fractional-ounce gold coins, a 1 oz silver coin, and a 1 oz platinum coin. Provident Metals currently has 2008 Austrian Philharmonic 1 oz Gold Coins available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase one of these 2008 Austrian Philharmonic 1 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is housed in an individual protective flip. The coins issued in 2008 hit a mintage that was then the highest in the series, totaling 715,842 coins in total.
For the obverse side of the 2008 Austrian Philharmonic Gold Coin, the mint features the Great Pipe Organ. This design comes with a depiction of the organ from within the Golden Concert Hall, otherwise known as the Musikverein. The field includes inscriptions of REPUBLIK OSTERREICH, 1 UNZE, 999.9, 2008, and 100 EUROS.
In the reverse design of 2008 Philharmonic 1 oz Gold Coins, you will find a depiction of musical instruments. This design from Thomas Pesendorfer features a cello at the center, with two violins on either side, a bassoon, a harp, and a French horn in the background. Inscriptions on this face of the coin read WIENER PHILHARMONIKER.
Austrian Philharmonic 1 oz Gold Coins debuted in 1989 alongside a 1/4 oz gold coin. In 1991, the Austrian Mint introduced a 1/10 oz gold coin. In 1994, the mint introduced a 1/2 oz gold coin to the series. The 2014 date was the 25th anniversary for the series and resulted in the final release of the series, a 1/25 oz gold coin that remains in production today.
