You can be sure of quality and authenticity as LPM.HK orders gold and silver philharmonic coins direct from the Austrian Mint securing the chain of custody logistics.
The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is one of, if not the most, important cultural icons for the nation of Austria. Formed during the 1850s, the orchestra has continuously performed in every decade since. Its home at the Musikverein Golden Hall in the Inner Stadt neighborhood of Vienna, the national capital, is a pilgrimage all classic music lovers must make to see. It was only natural to select this icon as the official inspiration for the nation’s bullion coin program.
Gold Austrian Philharmonic coins were introduced as a 1 oz. bullion product in 1989, with a reverse and obverse design courtesy of Thomas Pessendorfer. Today, the program has extended to include four fractional-weight coins in gold, and a 1 oz. Silver Austrian Philharmonic coin (introduced in 2008).
On the reverse face of the Gold Austrian Philharmonic is a collection of musical instruments representative of the orchestra. Included in the design are violins, cellos, a flute, bassoon, and French horn. Engravings on this face are in German, and read “Wiener Philharmoniker.”
The obverse bears the image of the pipe organ found inside the Golden Hall. Engravings on this side are also in German, and read “Republik Osterreich” and “1 Unze Gold 9999.” Gold Austrian Philharmonic coins are produced by the Austrian Mint. Founded in the 12 century by Duke Leopold V, it is one of Europe’s oldest operating facilities.
