Each of the 1993 1 oz Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coins available here at JM Bullion comes in protective plastic flips for delivery. The 1993 release was the fifth of the series and offered a relatively low mintage of only 234,000 coins. Though it is far from the record low for the series, it is the 12th lowest of the collection to date.
Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins were introduced by the Austrian Mint in 1989 with 1 oz gold coins and 1/4 oz gold coins available. It took just two years for the mint to expand the program, introducing a 1/10 oz gold coin in 1991. Subsequent issues included the introduction of a 1/2 oz gold coin in 1994 and a 1/25 oz gold coin in 2014.
In the obverse design of the 1993 Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin, the mint features an image of the Great Pipe Organ. This design offers a vision of the pipe organ that is permanently installed within the Musikverein, the concert hall in Vienna where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs.
For the reverse face of 1993 1 oz Gold Philharmonic Coins, you will find a depiction of musical instruments. Honoring the members of the Philharmonic Orchestra, this design shows a cello, violins, a harp, a bassoon, and a horn. Thomas Pesendorfer, Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint, created these designs for the Austrian Mint in 1989.
