Austrian Silver Philharmonic

Silver Philharmonic

Silver Coin Information

The Austrian Silver Philharmonic was first offered in 2008 following the popularity of the Gold Philharmonic. The silver bullion coins are produced by the Austrian Mint and contain one ounce of .999 fine silver.

The Silver Philharmonic carries the same design as the Gold Philharmonic, which honors the Vienna Philharmonics Orchestra. The obverse of the coin features the Great Organ of the Golden Hall. The inscriptions indicate the date and 1.50 Euro face value of the coins. The reverse of the coin features an assortment of musical instruments. The reverse inscription reads “Weiner Philharmoniker” and “Silber” which translate to “Vienna Philharmonic” and “Silver”.

So far, the Silver Philharmonic coins have been issued in 2008 and 2009. The coins have been issued in one ounce silver size. The coins have generally been available for lower premiums as compared to other world silver bullion coins. This was particularly the case amidst the long running shortage of American Silver Eagle coins.
