Austrian Vienna Philharmonic
Minted beginning in 1989, all Philharmonics is minted at the Austrian Mint AG, now a subsidiary of the Austrian National Bank. The Mint was established in 1194 and has remained in its current building since 1837. The Austrian Mint guarantees the Philharmonic's weight and purity and backs its monetary face value, which was the highest of any gold bullion coin when it was denominated in Schilling, prior to the creation and acceptance of the Euro. Philharmonics make an excellent addition to a portfolio for investors seeking 24-karat gold coins.
