Tube of 20 x 1 Ounce 2021 Silver Philharmonics

The 2021 Austrian Silver Philharmonic coin is a newly released product from the Austrian Mint. The coin was produced for the first time in February 2008 in brilliant uncirculated condition. The coins were produced in the honor of the Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra. Individual coins weigh 1 ounce and contain silver that is .999 pure.

The Austrian Philharmonic coins are also minted in gold and platinum. The design of philharmonic coins was inspired by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra founded in 1842. The orchestra is considered one of the best in the world. For musicians to be admitted into the orchestra, they must undergo rigorous vetting.

The front of the silver Philharmonic bears an image of the Great Organ. This is a large musical instrument built to resemble the structure of the Golden Concert Hall. The venue where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs in Austria is called Musikverein.

The back of the silver Philharmonic coin bears the image of eight instruments used by the Vienna Orchestra. The design has a cello at the centre surrounded by two violins on the side. The French horn, the harp, and the bassoon appear in the background.
