2021 Austrian Gold Vienna Philharmonic Designs
Both faces of the Gold Philharmonic bear designs that were created by Thomas Pesendorfer. On the obverse is the pipe organ of the Musikverein’s Golden Hall. The Musikverein is the home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The name of the issuing country in its native German, “REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH,” arches over the instrument. Below are inscriptions of the coin’s weight and purity, the date, “2021,” and the coin’s face value.
The reverse design features a selection of instruments from the orchestra. A cello is at the center. It is flanked by four violins, two on each side, a Vienna horn, a bassoon, and a harp. The name of the coin, “WIENER PHILHARMONIKER,” spreads throughout the top half of the rim.
