Gold Vienna Philharmonics
Design and Specifications

Monex, the country's leading precious metals investment firm, is pleased to offer gold investors the incomparable, pure gold Vienna Philharmonic...a legal-tender gold bullion coin recognized throughout the world for its beauty, purity and high quality.

Vienna Philharmonic coins are produced by the Austrian Mint in Vienna, Austria, which has been producing innovative coinage and currency for over 800 years, making it one of the oldest continuously-producing minting institutions in the world.

Gold Vienna Philharmonics Obverse

First struck in 1989, the Vienna Philharmonic coin is the only European legal tender gold coin produced on a large scale, and it is the only regularly issued bullion coin denominated in euros. It is also to our knowledge the only gold coin to ever have been featured on the side of an seen here on an Austrian Airlines Airbus A340.

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 features imagery of 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.

Gold Vienna Philharmonic Coins for Sale

The reverse side of the coin features the image of the "Great Organ" found in Vienna's "Golden Hall," the concert 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.

It is interesting to note that Vienna Philharmonic coin is unique in that it is one of the few gold coins in the world to have been minted and circulated with two different currency values: From 1989 through 2001, the coin was denominated in Austrian Shillings. Starting in 2002, the coins have been denominated in euros.

Today, Monex sells more Vienna Philharmonics in North America annually than any other firm...and is among the top three dealers of the coins in the world.

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.
