The Austrain Mint began striking this coin in 2008, a one ounce Philharmonic using silver with a purity of 99.9%.
The design of the silver Vienna Philharmonic is almost identical to the gold philharmonicas, that has been produced since 1989. The only noticeable differences are the words "1 Unze Feinsilber" on the obverse, "Silber" on the reverse, and the fact that the silver version has a smooth edge.
The denomination, or face value, is 1.50 Euro.
The Austrian Mint explains:
"The face value of a bullion coin is appreciably lower than the value of its metal content. The somewhat unusual face value of 1.50 Euro on the new coin is explained by the fact that both the 1 Euro and 2 Euro are reserved for ordinary circulation in Europe."
These coins are currently one of the only 1oz silver coins we are able to source in quantities and as we are now sourcing them directly from the Austrian Mint we are able to offer them at extremely competitive prices, making them ideal for investors.
The great organ in the Golden Hall in Vienna's concert hall (Musikverein) is the theme for the obverse side of the coin. This is the home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Also featured on this side are the face value in Euros plus the weight, fineness and year of issue.
