First struck in 1989 by the Austrian Mint; the Vienna Philharmonic Gold Coins may be one of the most aesthetic and creative masterpieces to transpire out of the capital of the Austria during modern times.
The Vienna Philharmonic Gold Coin pays homage to the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and could easily be the one of the most beautiful and desirable ways to own gold. Similar in purity to the Royal Canadian minted Maple Leafs, these Vienna Philharmonic gold coins are struck in 24 karat gold, and boast a higher purity content than the extremely popular U.S. minted American Gold Eagles which are comprised of 22 karat gold.
The Vienna Philharmonic Gold Coins are available in several dimensions ranging from 1-Ounce, 1/2-Ounce, 1/4-Ounce, and 1/10-Ounce, making the pieces attractive among both collectors and investors.
The 1-Ounce coin has a face value of 100 Euro, 1/2-Ounce is 50 Euro, 1/4-Ounce is 25 Euro, and the 1/10-Ounce is 10 Euro. The gold content is obviously a much higher value in metallic content than its Euro face value suggests, but the given values are done for symbolic reasons and pay homage to the Euro, as the pieces originate from Europe.
Owning Vienna Philharmonic Gold coins allows the buyer to have a highly-desirable and recognized tangible asset and, at the same time possess one of the world’s most magnificently-produced bullion pieces. These pieces can be traded with ease amongst dealers, collectors, and the public; finding themselves highly-favored within the numismatic and bullion market.
