MINTING

The Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins are produced at the Austrian Mint which is located in Vienna, Austria. The national Austrian Mint is well-known for its beautiful designs and innovative currency. In fact, it has been minting coins for over 800 years, making it one of the oldest government run minting institutions in the entire world. The Gold Austrian Philharmonic coin was designed as a commemoration of the Viennese Philharmonic orchestra which calls Austria its home.

In fact, partly due to the quality of the coin, it’s one the only types of gold tender in Europe that is still produced and created on a large scale. On top of that, it’s regularly issued as Euro denominations, which is uncommon for bullion coins.  Gold Philharmonics are an unhedged asset, meaning they are minted in unlimited quantity to meet market demand.”
