New coin series.

This is the first euro buillion silver coin minted.


The Vienna Philharmonic is an orchestra in Austria, regularly considered one of the finest in the world.


Its home base is the Musikverein. The members of the orchestra are chosen from the Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera.

This process is a long one, with each musician having to prove their capability for a minimum of three years playing for the

Opera and Ballet. Once this is achieved they can then ask the Board of the Wiener Philharmoniker to consider their

application for a position in the Vienna Philharmonic.


The Vienna Philharmonic was named as Europe's finest in a recent survey by seven leading trade publications, two radio

stations and a daily newspaper. Attending a VPO concert is a feat not to be undertaken lightly. While on international tour,

tickets are typically, at the minimum, double what one would normally pay to hear the local orchestra. Ticket demand for the

Vienna Philharmonic at their home, Musikverein, are listed on the orchestra's website as being completely sold out.

The waiting list for weekday concert subscriptions is six years and thirteen years for weekend subscriptions.

Gold Coin

The orchestra is so popular and famous, that has been the motive of one of the world's most famous bullion coins:

the Vienna Philharmonic coin. The coin is struck in pure gold. It is issued every year, in four different face values, sizes

and weights. It is used as an investment product, although it finishes almost always in hands of collectors. According

to the World Gold Council, this coin was the best selling gold coin in 1992, 1995 and 1996 world wide.[/font]

I purchased one of these silver 1 ouncers when they first came available. I collect music coins. It is a nice looking coin and came in a leatherette red case. Nice addition to the collection.
