Silver Philharmonic coins especially 2008 & 2009 are very difficult to source in the Asian region as these coins started production only in 2008 in Austria and were at that time popular in Europe.
Launched in February 2008, the Vienna Philharmonic silver bullion coin is produced by the Austrian Mint, the official minting authority of Austria. The Austrian Mint has an 800-year tradition of minting some of the most beautiful and technically perfect coins in all of Europe. The Mint's roots date back to 1194 when an enormous silver treasure—from a ransom paid to free England's King Richard the Lionhearted, taken prisoner in Vienna on his way back from the Crusades—was used to create silver coins for the Austrian empire.
Today, the Austrian Mint is one of the most modern and proficient mints in the world and is a leading producer of Euro coinage and pure gold and silver bullion coins.
The observe side of the coin features selected instruments of the world-famous orchestra.
The reverse side of the coin depicts the great organ of the Golden Hall in Vienna, the site of the annual New Year’s Day Concert. Its face value of “1.50 €” gives the silver piece its coin character.
The words “Austrian Republic” (the country of issue), the silver weight in ounces, and the 1.50 Euro legal tender value are also stamped in German. The words "Feinsilber" mean "Fine Silver" in German and stand for 99.9% purity.
Technical data of the Vienna Philharmonic Silver Bullion Coin:
Face Value in Euro: 1.50 €
Weight in grams: 31.103
Diameter in mm: 37.0

The Vienna Philharmonic is an investment coin (silver bullion coin). Its annual mintage depends on the demand.
The Vienna Philharmonics are packaged by the mint in tubes of 20 coins each. We sell directly by the tube or by the monster box (25 tubes x 20 coins = 500 pieces) so each order must be in multiples of 20 coins.
Points computation: 1 coin = 1.00 points
