The Vienna Philharmonic, often shortened to just Philharmonic, was first produced in 1989. The 1oz Gold Coin has a face value of 2,000 Austrian schillings (ATS). In 2002 the Philharmonic's face value was changed to Euro. It is the only European coin with a face value in Euros.
The popularity of the Vienna Philharmonic grew quickly: in 1990, the coin was the best selling in Europe and second in the world. The Austrian Mint produce coins according to demand, therefore production varies from year to year accordingly. However design on the coin remains the same each year.
Unlike the smooth edge of the Silver Philharmonic coin, the gold coin has a reeded edge. The reverse of the coin shows instruments of the Vienna Philharmonic, including Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, and four violins centered on a cello. Both designs were produced by the chief engraver of the Austrian Mint, Thomas Pesendorfer.
