Beginning with the Gold Philharmonic first released by the Austrian Mint in 1989, the series was expanded to include the Silver Coin containing 1 oz of .999 fine silver, and then two sizes in .9995 fine Platinum in 2016 & 2018. All releases in the Philharmonic series pay tribute to Vienna Musikverein’s Golden Hall and the various instruments of the Vienna Philharmonic and share a common obverse and reverse design. To mark the anniversary of the Gold Philharmonic in 2004 a 1,000 oz version was created, and for the 20th Anniversary a 20 oz Gold coin was released. Today, several sizes are released in the Gold yearly including 1/25 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz, in addition to the Silver & Platinum coins.
