In 1989, the chief engraver of the Austrian Mint, Thomas Pesendorfer, designed the coin that commemorates the world-renowned orchestra and features a string bass, cellos, violins, a bassoon, a harp, and a Viennese horn on its reverse. The obverse of the coin shows the great organ of the Musikverein concert hall in Vienna, the orchestra’s home. The face value, weight, fineness, and year of issue are also featured on this side of the coin.
According to the World Gold Council, the Austrian Philharmonic was the best-selling gold coin worldwide in 1992, 1995, and 1996.
