The Silver Philharmonic coin is Europe's most popular silver bullion coin, and you can stack these silver coins in bulk with the "monster box" of 2018 1 oz Austrian Silver Philharmonics (500 Coins). Each coin is struck from .999 fine silver and contains 1 troy oz of fine silver content, meaning one box includes 500 troy ounces of pure silver. Individually, the coins have a face value of €1.5.
The reverse design of the coin, created by Thomas Pesendorfer, shows an ensemble of orchestral instruments: a harp, bassoon, and Viennese horn stand in the back row while a cello and four violins are placed in front. The legend "WIENER PHILHARMONIKER" ("Vienna Philharmonic" in German) curls along the top half of the rim in Gothic lettering. The composition is denoted by "SILBER" in smaller text below.
On the obverse, the Grand Organ from the world-famous Musikverein concert hall in Vienna is depicted. The issuing country "REPUBLIK OSTERREICH" ("Republic of Austria") stretches across the top rim. Inscriptions for the weight and composition, "1 UNZE FEINSILBER," appear beneath the organ. They are joined by the year-date "2018" and the denomination "1,50 EURO" at the bottom rim. The edge is plain.
Every Mint Sealed Monster Box of 2018 1 oz Austrian Silver Philharmonics comes directly from the Austrian Mint (Münze Österreich in German) and has its original seal. The coins are arranged within the box in 25 plastic tubes that contain 20 coins each. Get your monster box of Silver Philharmonics at Gainesville Coins while they are still available!
