Austria Philharmonic

The Austrian Silver Vienna Philharmonic is a silver bullion coin produced annually by the Austrian Mint since February 2008. It is sold as a mass-produced investment coin. The coin is legal tender in Austria with a face value of 1.50 Euros. It weighs 1 troy ounce of 99.9% fine silver. A gold Vienna Philharmonic has been produced since 1989. The coins are distributed from the Austrian Mint.

The coin was first issued on 1 February 2008 with 7,773,000 units minted. The mintage of the coins peaked in 2011 when 17,873,700 coins were struck, making it the most common date. Recent years have seen lower mintage totals with a low mintage of 2.064,804 coins minted in 2017. With no key dates issued as of yet, the value of each Silver Vienna Philharmonic remains near the current spot price of silver without inflation of numismatic value.

The design for the coin was originally created by Thomas Pesendorfer to be used for the Gold Vienna Philharmonic that was first issued in 1989. The Austrian Mint introduced the silver version of the coin in 2008. The design was unchanged and has remained the same each year.
