First issued in 1991, the Vienna Philharmonic 1oz gold coin displays the Austrian’s appreciation for music by using the world famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra as the basis for the Thomas Pesendorfer design. Chief Engraver for the Austrian Mint, Pesendorfer chose eight characteristic orchestral instruments: four violins on either side of a cello in the foreground and the Viennese horn, the bassoon and the harp behind for the reverse design. The obverse features the famous pipe organ from the Goldener Saal of the Viennese Musikverein, the words “Republik Oesterreich,” and coin specifications.
