Gold Vienna Philharmonics
Design and Specifications
The Austrian Mint in Vienna has been producing innovative coinage and currency for over 800 years and the Vienna Philharmonic is no exception.
First struck in 1989, the Vienna Philharmonic coin is the only European legal tender gold coin produced on a large scale and the only regularly issued bullion coin denominated in euros.
The Vienna Philharmonic is pure gold, with a fineness of .9999 or 24 karats, and is the largest diameter one ounce pure gold coin in the world.
Each Vienna Philharmonic coin masterfully depicts the cultural pride of Austria, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The obverse side of the coin is stamped with the name of the orchestra in German, and features a montage of instruments, including a string bass, cellos, violins, a bassoon, harp and Viennese horn, representing Austria's rich musical and cultural heritage.
The reverse side of the coin features the image of the "Great Organ" found in Vienna's Golden Hall where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs. The country of issue, the gold weight in ounces, legal
tender value in euros and the coin's purity are also stamped on the reverse side of the coin.

In October 2004, to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Europe's only pure gold bullion coin, the Austrian Mint, under the direction of Master of the Mint Dietmar Spranz, issued the massive 1,000 troy ounce Vienna Philharmonic Gold Coin known affectionately known as the "Big Phil." The Mint produced only 15 of these mega-coins, each weighing in at slightly more than 68 pounds of pure .9999 fine gold and carrying a face value of 100,000 euro. Monex is proud to have handled all original sales of the Big Phil coins in North America.
