Some of the most beautiful coins in the world are silver bullion coins. At Colonial Acres Coins, we have a great selection of incredible coins from around the world. Although we are best known for the bullion Canada produces, we also carry examples from other countries, including Austria. One of the best Austrian coins is a silver bullion coin celebrating the nation’s philharmonic history.
Austria’s Philharmonic History
Austria was the home of many of the most recognizable and accomplished classical composers in the world. Perhaps most famously, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was Austrian. Other Austrian composers include Joseph Haydn, Gustav Mahler and Franz Liszt. No classical music education is complete without studying the music of these individuals.
Of course, these composers and many of their contemporaries did not just have an impact on Austria. Their travels around Europe helped to both spread Austria’s musical heritage and expose them to the musical cultures of Germany, France, Britain and many other nations.
Today, Austrians continue their rich history of philharmonic music. That is a major part of why the Austrian mint has continued to produce coins celebrating this cultural heritage.
The 2022 Philharmonic Silver Coin
This silver bullion coin is a beautiful example of combining craftwork and artistry. It weighs one troy ounce and is made from 99.9% pure fine silver. The face denomination is 1.5 Euros and it is 37 millimetres in diameter.
On the obverse face is a design with an array of musical instruments. This includes violins, a cello, harp, French horn and bassoon. The face is also inscribed with the words Wiener Philharmoniker and silber, for silver. This stunning design is perfect for any music lover.
The reverse face also features a beautiful, musically inspired design. The design represents the Great Organ of the Musikverein. Located in Inner Stadt, Vienna, this organ is both visually and acoustically stunning. The current organ is the fourth to grace the hall since it opened in 1870. However, it perfectly integrates with the surrounding architecture and reflects the Musikverein perfectly.
The Austrian Mint has released a series of philharmonic coins since 2008. They celebrate the nation’s rich culture. Whether you love music, Austria or just enjoy a carefully crafted coin, this is a perfect addition to your collection. There is no denying the great contributions of Austrians to music, and there is no denying that this coin helps to capture the beauty of that music in a small way.
The Value of Investing in Silver Bullion
Investing in silver bullion coins is a popular option for both numismatists and those who want to collect precious metals. They are a great way to collect silver. Additionally, they tend to carry some of the most eye-catching designs. This 2022 coin is a perfect example of that. It is valuable not just for its weight in silver but also for its incredible design.
This creates an interesting opportunity. In the worst-case scenario, the coin will appreciate according to the market value of silver (generally, a good store of value for hedging against inflation). In the best-case scenario, the coin will gain even more value as a collector’s item. In other words, it is a win-win.
