2008 Philharmonic gold 1 oz uncirculated coins.
If you're looking for coins with even lower premiums, see our Best Value Minty 1 oz Philharmonics.
The Austrian Mint in Vienna followed suit from the Royal Canadian Mint, South Africa Mint and Royal Mint, minting its first 1oz gold bullion coin in 1989. Its design celebrates the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, considered by many to be the finest in the world, hence the name The Vienna Philharmonic coin, more commonly known as The Philharmonic or Philharmoniker, and sometimes shortened to Phil(s).
The Philharmonic coin is produced using 0.9999 gold and originally had a face value of 2000 Schillings (ATS), making the coin legal tender in Austria. However, since Austria adopted the Euro in 2002, the face value of the 1oz gold Philharmonic was changed to €100, making it the only European bullion gold coin but still with a legal tender status only in Austria.
The obverse shows the Great Organ of the Golden Hall in Vienna’s concert hall, the Musikverein, along with the year which is our choice of date, weight 1 unze (ounce) and face value of 100 euros.
The reverse depicts a selection of instruments, including the cello, violin, harp, Vienna horn and bassoon.
