The first silver philharmonic coin was issued in 2008. This beautiful Vienna Philharmonic 1oz silver 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.
