The Austrian Silver Philharmonic is notable for the fact that it is the first silver coin of its type to be given a face value in euros. It is minted in Vienna by the Austrian Mint and each coin contains .999 pure silver. Many may be familiar with the Gold Philharmonic, which is the most popular gold bullion coin in Europe right now. This silver counterpart features the same design, including the Great Pipe Organ that is found in the Golden Hall in Vienna, which is the home for the Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Austrian Silver Philharmonic also states that it is “1 ounce pure silver.” The reverse of the coin features a number of selected instruments which are played in this famous orchestra, including a harp, oboe, and French horn.
