Austrian Philharmonic bullion coins have a common design shared across all versions of the coin. Issued annually by the Austrian Mint, these coins were designed by the mint’s Chief Engraver, Thomas Pesendorfer, in 1989 for the debut of the 1 oz and 1/4 oz gold coins. Over the last three-plus decades, this design has been replicated across 1/2 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/25 oz gold coins, as well as the 1 oz silver, 1 oz platinum, and 1/25 oz platinum coins.
The 1 oz platinum coins recently set a mintage record in 2020. As demand for precious metals skyrocketed in 2020 and prices soared, several coin programs around the world benefited from renewed demand. The 1 oz Platinum Philharmonic set an initial sales record with its 2016 debut at 35,257 coins. The next three years saw demand slump to between 13,000 and 17,000 coins. In 2020, the program roared back to life with a new mintage record of 40,891 coins.
The grand pipe organ from within the Musikverein is visible on the obverse side of 2022 1 oz Austrian Platinum Philharmonic Coins. This pipe organ is a central fixture of the Golden Concert Hall, the main performance venue within the building and the home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra when it performs in Austria.
Musical instruments are clustered on the reverse side of 2022 Austrian Platinum Philharmonic Coins. This design field includes a cello in the central foreground, with two violins on each side. The background includes a French horn, bassoon, and a harp from left to right across the design field.
These 2022 1 oz Austrian Platinum Philharmonic Coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins in this series are available individually in protective flips, by multiples of 10 in plastic tubes, and by multiples of 100 in a box that holds 10 tubes of 10 coins each.
