The Vienna Philharmonic was introduced in 1989. The first Gold Philharmonics were issued in 1 oz and ¼ oz sizes. The 1/10 oz and ½ oz coins were introduced in 1991 and 1994.
In 2014, to honor the 25th anniversary of the Philharmonic, the Austrian Mint introduced a 1/25 oz Philharmonic with a face value of 4 Euro. This is one of the smallest fractional size gold coins on the market.
All Gold Philharmonics have the same design with the only difference being the weight and nominal value.
In 2008 the Austrian Mint introduced a 1 ounce Silver Philharmonic with a face value of 1.50 Euro. The coin has the same design as the Gold Philharmonic and is 99.9% pure silver.
