Introduction

Tavex is pleased to present Europe’s best selling investment gold coin, the Austrian Gold Philharmonic. Hailed for its impeccable artistic design, quality and beauty, it was the first legal tender gold coin to have its face value denominated in Euros, thus broadening its recognition and acceptability. First issued in 1989 by one of the world’s oldest and most renowned mints, the Austrian Mint in Vienna, the Gold Philharmonic coin encapsulates the essence of Austria’s rich culture and is suitable for investors who appreciate style, sophistication and 99.99% gold purity. As a long-term partner of the Austrian Mint and being the largest dealer in Scandinavia for Gold Philharmonic coins, Tavex is able to offer market leading quotes for any desired quantity of this magnificent gold bullion coin.

Why Buy

  • This 1 oz coin tracks the price of gold. The value of Philharmonic coins is primarily determined by their fine gold content which is linked to the prevailing price of gold.
  • Gold Philharmonic coins are money. Considered legal tender in the Republic of Austria, it is the only legal tender gold coin in Europe to have its face value denominated in Euros.
  • The Gold Philharmonic coin is liquid and internationally recognised. It is Europe’s only legal tender gold coin to have been in continuous production for the past 25 years, depicting motifs of the world renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
  • Gold Philharmonics are sold with a low premium. As a partner of the Austrian Mint, Tavex is able to offer Gold Philharmonic coins with a low mark-up premium.
  • Gold Philharmonics are 99.99% pure gold. A combination of high gold purity and artistic design gives the Gold Philharmonic a highly lustrous gold colour, dangerous for anyone susceptible to catching “gold fever”.
  • Austrian Gold Philharmonics are the equivalent of savings. Gold Philharmonic gold coins are an ideal choice for any long-term saver who appreciates the security and stability of owning physical legal tender gold coins.
  • Gold Philharmonic coins are an excellent way to diversify your portfolio. Gold’s low correlation with other financial assets makes Gold Philharmonics serve as a portfolio hedge against market risk.

History

The Austrian Mint is responsible for the production of the coins. The Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins that were issued from 1989 to 2001 are denominated in Austrian Shillings. When Austria switched to the new Euro currency at the beginning of 2000 it automatically meant that the face value of legal tender Gold Philharmonics would have to change as well. From 2002 onwards, all Gold Philharmonic coins have a face value denominated in Euros.

The Gold Philharmonic coin immortalises classical music in pure gold

The Austrian Gold Philharmonic coin was introduced for the first time in 1989 and would be Austria’s first legal tender coin to contain 99.99% pure gold. The Gold Philharmonic was very well received by the investment public that cherished the coin’s high gold purity, the craftsmanship that went into it, and also the fact that it was the first legal tender gold coin to be embellished with cultural symbols that most people could relate to: music. The decision to use music as a theme for the Gold Philharmonic coin made perfect sense since it represents the essence of Austria’s cultural achievements over the centuries. Many world famous musicians and composers, such as Mozart, Strauss, and Beethoven to name a few, have contributed to making Austria, and specifically its capital Vienna, famous for its operas and symphonies. Their work in classical and romantic music is immortalised in the Gold Philharmonic coin, making it a must for investors who have an affinity for the precious sound of pure gold. 

Gold Philharmonics and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

The Gold Philharmonic coin is named after the world renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The orchestra was founded in 1842 by a group of people in response to Vienna’s lack of professional orchestral organizations in the early 19th century. An administrative committee democratically elected by its musician members managed the orchestra as an independent body. The professional musicians who made up the ensemble were chosen exclusively from the Vienna State Opera where they had to have been playing for at least three years before even being considered as a potential member. To this date, the stringent recruiting process has not changed, which ensures the very highest level of artistic performance from every member of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is today most famous for its traditional New Year’s concerts where nostalgic music from great composers is performed. These concerts have grown to become so popular that they are televised to over 90 countries, sending a message of joy for the New Year through the gracious and delightful character of music.

The Austrian Mint, a subsidiary of Austria’s Central Bank, is a world renowned mint which dates back to the 12th century. The story of the Austrian Mint begins in 1194, when Richard the Lionheart paid 12 tonnes of silver to secure his freedom from imprisonment by the Austrian Duke Leopold V. The Duke would later use the silver to strike silver coins, thus laying the foundation for the Austrian Mint. In its rich and long history, the Austrian Mint has produced many of Europe’s most famous and widely used coins, including gold crowns, guilders, ducats and silver coins such as the Maria Theresa thaler. Many of the gold coins issued by the Austrian Mint were extensively used in trade during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, while the silver thaler proved to be one of the most minted and widely used silver coins in global commerce between 1750 and the 1950s.  Today, the  mint  is  best recognised  for producing  Europe’s  most  desired  investment bullion coins, the Gold and Silver Philharmonic bullion coins.
