  • Austrian Silver Philharmonic - 1 oz - 2022

    These Silvercoin was added to the popular Austrian Philharmonic coin series in 2008, though the series itself was first introduced by the Austrian Mint in 1989 with the Philharmonic Gold coin. Producing Gold and Silver coins for sale for more than 800 years, the Austrian Mint is the sole mint of the Republic of Austria. Initially, Silver bullion coins and other Precious Metals coins were struck using a minting hammer. However, in the 16th century, other minting methods were used with the invention of new machines, such as the rocker press and screw press. Silver bullion you buy now has been created using ring striking, which has been used in some shape or form by the Austrian Mint since 1830.


    The motif always keeps the same. Only the mintage year changes. The motif shows eight characteristic orchestral instruments: four violins either side of a cello in the foreground and the Viennese horn, the bassoon and the harp behind. The coin was designed by Thomas Pesendorfer, the Austrian Mint’s chief engraver. 


    The obverse side features the famous pipe organ from the Goldener Saal of the Viennese Musikverein, recognised throughout the world as the backdrop to the Philharmonic’s New Year concerts. The organ case was designed by the architect Theophil von Hansen, who was responsible for the whole building. The original organ was built by Friedrich Ladegast in 1872 and since then the organ has been renovated and replaced on various occasions, the last being in 2011. Visually, the body of the organ remains unchanged despite technical alterations. Above the organ, the words “Republik Oesterreich” stand in a semi-circle, while the weight and purity of the coin, with the date of issue below, stand beneath the balustrade of the organ. At the bottom edge of the coin appears its face value. The edge of the coin is reeded.
