Sell your Austrian Philharmonic (Philharmoniker) online
Named after the Viennese Philharmonic, the Philharmoniker is currently one of the most popular bullion coins. This applies to both its gold and silver version. Annual demand for the 1 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic reaches several hundred thousands every year since 1989, the year when it was first minted. The gold version is available in ¼ oz,1/10 oz and 1 oz. The silver Philharmoniker is only minted as a 1 oz coin.
The 1 oz Philharmoniker is made entirely out of 24-carat gold. It weighs 31.03 grams and has a fineness of 999.9/1000. That means it is immune to changes in color and corrosion unlike other bullion coins made out of an alloy of gold with a cheaper metal, such as the Krugerrand or Sovereign, which are made by adding copper. Pure gold content, however, has its flaws as well. Being a soft metal, gold is susceptible to scratchings and other damages. Make sure to store your Philharmonikers in a safe container so that they retain their value and beauty over the years! A 1 oz Gold Austrian Philharmonic has a diameter of 37 mm and a thickness of 2 mm. The obverse shows the pipe organ in Vienna Musikverein Golden Hall and the reverse depicts typical orchestra instruments – a harp, violins, a cello, bassoon and a Vienna horn.
The Austrian Mint released special limited editions of the Gold Philharmonic to celebrate the 20th and 25th anniversaries of release. These were the 20 oz Gold Philharmonic and 1/25 oz Gold Philharmonic. Both coins were considered more as a collection piece than bullion, but the production of the 1/25 oz coin still continued in 2015, with the demand reaching several thousand pieces. There was also a special 1000 oz Gold Philharmonic released to celebrate the 15th anniversary. It was called “Big Phil” and was made using 31.103 kg of gold.
