The Vienna Philharmonic coin celebrates its first quarter century

November 18th, 2014 got to know that Austria Post released a set of stamp celebrating the 50th anniversary the Vienna Philharmonic coin. The stamps depict the coin itself. This philatelic issue was released and put into circulation on the 5th of November.

It is exactly 25 years since the Vienna Philharmonic bullion coin first came on the market. The 10 October 1989, to be exact, was the very day the coin and its award-winning design, featuring a harmonious selection of instruments from the world-famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, began gracing investment portfolios the world over.

This design has remained a constant, as has the depiction on the other side, which shows the great organ of the Musikverein concert hall in Vienna, home of both the orchestra and the celebrated New Year Concert. This synonymity with the unparalleled musical excellence of the city of Vienna is no doubt a factor in the coin's success.
