The Vienna Philharmonic 1/10 ounce gold coin, minted in 2022 by the Münze Österreich, the Austrian mint.
Inspired in 1989 by the success of other bullion coins that paid tribute to the cultures of the nations in which they were minted, Münze Österreich decided to create a series on the Vienna Philharmonic, one of the best-known orchestras on the planet and one that every January 1st brings classical music lovers together in front of their television sets to enjoy arguably the most anticipated concert of the New Year. Since then, every year they have launched an edition that repeats the same design, which has captivated the public so much.
On the cross, we find the design of the organ in the hall of the Wiener Musikverein music association, with a spectacular level of detail: each of the pipes that make up the instrument can be appreciated to perfection. At the top, the frieze and pediment are decorated with a number of beautiful motifs, and at the top, two magnificent statues add to the coin's embellishment. Above them, the name of the country in German, and at the bottom, the metal and the number of ounces, the year of issue and the face value of the coin.
The face is particularly ornate: its design features the instruments of the orchestra: four violins, a harp, a bassoon, a bassoon, a cello and a horn, with a design that involves a great deal of work and care in its execution, as all the strings are visible and their arrangement is striking for its symmetry and regularity.
The name of the coin in German and the metal from which it is made appear above the instruments. The edge of the coin is simple and flat, with no decorative elements of any kind.
This Vienna Philharmonic was minted in 2022 with 1/10 ounce of 99.999% pure gold, measures 37.00 millimetres in diameter, has a thickness of 2.00 millimetres and weighs 31.104 grams. Get it at the best price guaranteed!
