In 2008, the Austrian Mint began producing the Austria 1 oz Silver Philharmonic. While the coin is relatively new, the heritage behind it is centuries old. The coin's design features images that reflect the history of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra.
Mozart and Beethoven, both among the greatest classical music composers, pushed for a professional orchestra in Vienna. However, it was not until 1842 that the Vienna Philharmonic gave its first performance. Otto Nikolai was persuaded to become its first conductor, but the Philharmonic only gave 11 concerts in its first 5 years. The first season, each of its four concerts included a performance of a Beethoven composition.
Just as the Philharmonic is one the most widely recognized as a great orchestra, the Austria 1 oz Silver Philharmonic is one of the most popular both in Europe and throughout the world. Its superior liquidity is due partly to its characteristic of being a common date coin. Another factor is that it is a desirable coin to three groups of people: collectors, investors and music lovers.
As a Precious Metal, the Silver of the Austrian 1 oz. Philharmonic coin is a stable investment when compared to stocks. Since Silver is used in so many applications, it is likely to become even more valuable as time goes by. And, Silver is something physical you can own that will continue to retain its value in the foreseeable future.
