Gainesville Coins has 2012 1 oz Austrian Silver Philharmonic coins in stock. These coins each contain 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
The Austrian Silver Philharmonic is perhaps Europe’s best known silver bullion coin. It was first introduced in 2008 to complement the Austrian Mint’s popular Gold Philharmonic bullion coin. Since then, the Silver Philharmonic has become a mainstay among silver bullion investors.
The Austrian Mint has been producing coins for over 800 years and is one of the oldest operating mints today. The Silver Philharmonic is legal tender and its design is essentially the same as the Gold Philharmonic.
The obverse features a number of classical instruments including a string bass, cellos, violins, a bassoon, harp, and a Vienna horn, and the text "Wiener Philharmoniker" (Vienna Philharmonic).
The reverse has an image designed by Thomas Pesendorfer of the Golden Hall's Great Organ in Vienna’s Musikverien. The reverse includes inscriptions of the year, country of origin, denomination and weight.
