After the success of the Austrian Gold Philharmonic coins that debuted in 1989, the Austrian Mint decided to expand the selection and released the 1/10 oz coin in 1991. It’s no surprise that this size has sold very well. Many collectors love having another size option when buying their coins. It’s also no surprise that, despite being smaller, it is in no way lesser in quality. The Austrian Mint still delivers a beautiful coin in .9999 fine gold.

With the introduction of the ¼ oz size of the Austrian Gold Philharmonic coin in 1989, it quickly became apparent that people liked the smaller size coin. This led to the introduction of the 1/10 size in 1991. Unsurprisingly, this has been an extremely popular size. Collectors seem to like more choices when buying gold. The Austrian Mint has gone on to release 4 more sizes.
The obverse side of the coin has the pipe organ as seen in the Musikverein, home of the world-famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The Musikverein has several concert halls but the main one is the Gold Concert Hall. This is where the organ sits and the orchestra performs. Above the image is ‘REPUBLIK OSTERREICH’. Below the image is ‘1/10 UNZE GOLD 9999 2022’. At the bottom of the coin is ‘10 EURO’.
On the reverse is an assortment of instruments used by the Philharmonic. Here we see a cello, violins, a bassoon, a French horn, and a harp. Above the instruments is ‘WEINER PHILHARMONIC’.

A very nice .10 Toz coin. Great luster, shape and affordable. Added bonus for being 1 of a very few modern European bullion coins without a pompous monarch on it. Easily recognizable and because of it’s lower cost, it is easier to stack. Highly recommended coin.
