Produced from 999.5 pure platinum, the new Vienna Philharmonic coin features the same award-winning design by Austrian Mint head designer Thomas Pesendorfer as its gold and silver counterparts. The coin, which is named for the world-famous orchestra, depicts the organ of the Musikverein concert hall in Vienna, the orchestra’s home, on one side and an assortment of musical instruments on the other. The new platinum coin will initially be available in 1 ounce denominations, and will be sold throughout Europe and in overseas markets including Japan and the United States.
