  • Metal: Gold

Full Description

The 1/2 Ounce Austrian Gold Philharmonic is a fractional gold bullion coin manufactured by the storied Austrian Mint. Located in Vienna, the Austrian Mint has produced outstanding gold and silver coins for centuries. Today, in addition to a variety of Euro coins, the Austrian Mint makes silver and gold bullion coins, with the Gold Philharmonic being the most notable example. The 1/2 oz Gold Philharmonic is the largest of the fractional versions of the standard, 1 oz Gold Philharmonic coin.

The 1/2 oz Gold Philharmonic is rarer than the 1 ounce version, and has become quite collectible. Although all Gold Philharmonics possess some numismatic value, they tend to trade closer to the actual spot price of gold than other gold bullion coins do. Due to their occasional scarcity, when you buy 1/2 Ounce Gold Philharmonics online from GMRGold, the mint dates of your coins are chosen at random from our inventory.

Details of the 1/2 Ounce Gold Philharmonic
The 1/2 Ounce Gold Philharmonic shares its design with its larger cousin. The overall theme honors the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

The obverse shows a collection of musical instruments used by the famed orchestra, along with the name of the orchestra in German.

The reverse of each Gold Philharmonic shows the Great Organ, which is in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna -- the home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The mint year, weight and gold fineness are also displayed on the obverse, along with the nominal face value, either 50 Euros or 1000 Schillings, depending on the mint year of the coin.

Investing in Gold Philharmonics
Despite having numismatic value and being highly collectible, it is not expensive to buy 1/2 oz Gold Philharmonics, indeed, they tend to trade close to the current spot gold price. This has made them popular with investors who are looking to buy gold coins online cheaply. The half-ounce Gold Philharmonic is also a great buy for beginners looking to start investing in gold bullion. Being a fractional piece, they are significantly cheaper than 1 ounce gold coins and bars.
