About the Gold Philharmonic Coin
The gold Philharmonic coin was first launched by the Austrian Mint in 1990. The coin was initially only launched in gold, and was released in Schilling denominations. However, in 2000 Austria adopted the Euro as its official currency, and the coin's legal tender value was updated to reflect Euros instead. To date, Austria is the only country to launch an official one ounce gold coin in Euro denominations. The United Kingdom also release the British Britannia coin, however this is backed by Pounds Sterling, not by Euros.
The gold Philharmonic is the official gold coin of the government of Austria. It is available in one ounce and fractional ounce sizes. The Mint also manufacture several larger sized gold Philharmonics annually, including a 1000 Ounce gold Philharmonic which was released in 2004.
The philharmonic coin was released in silver in 2000, and in platinum in 2016. To date, the Austrian Philharmonic does not manufacture a palladium Philharmonic coin.
