Since its first launch in 1989, the Austrian gold Philharmonic coin has been a must-have both in Europe and around the world. In 1990, the gold Philharmonic was the best-selling gold bullion coin in Europe and (more impressively) the second best-selling gold coin in the world. In a number of years including 1992, 1995, 1996 and 2000, the World Gold Council declared the Philharmonic the best-selling gold coin in the world

Nearly 14 million ounces of gold Philharmonics of various weights have been sold through the years – and more than half of them were 1 oz gold Philharmonics, over 700,000 in total. 

What makes the gold Philharmonic special? Well, it’s currently the only European bullion coin with a face value in euros (though it’s only considered legal tender in Austria). Its curious design doesn’t promote political ideologies or nationalism like most other government-issued gold coins. 

Nope, the Philharmonic’s design promotes the international language of music…

The obverse of the Austrian Philharmonic design features the pipe organ from Golden Hall in the Musikverein, the concert hall in Vienna where the namesake orchestra plays. The German words "REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH" (Republic of Austria), the composition and the weight are also minted on the obverse. 

The reverse design features an array of musical instruments including a harp, violins, a cello, a bassoon, and a Vienna or French horn. The words "WIENER PHILHARMONIKER" (Vienna Philharmonic) is also inscribed, as well as “1 UNZE GOLD 999.9” indicating the weight and purity of metal in the coin. 

In short, if you want to own one of the world’s favorite gold bullion coins, you can’t go wrong with a gold Austrian Philharmonic.

1 oz Austrian Philharmonic gold coin highlights:

  • Issued for over 30 years, the 1 oz Austrian gold Philharmonic coin is one of the very few gold bullion coins with a face value in euro
  • Contains 1 troy oz of 0.9999 pure gold in brilliant, uncirculated, straight-from-the-mint condition
  • Legal tender issued by the government of Austria with a face value of €100 (euro)
  • Variety of years available, selected from our on-hand stock when your order arrives (you may receive duplicate years)
  • A celebration of Austria's proud musical heritage: the famed pipe organ of the Musikverein on the reverse, orchestral instruments on obverse
  • Please note: we will select your Philharmonics from our on-hand stock at the time of your order. You may receive various or identical mintage years, which could include the current year.
  • Individual coins ship in protective plastic flip cases; orders of 10+ coins ship in protective plastic tubes and orders in increments of 500 ship in a monster box

About the Austrian Philharmonic series

Like the Canadian gold maple leaf and the Krugerrand, the designs of these gold Philharmonic coins don’t change. Their first issue was so wildly popular that the Austrian Mint kept its original design untouched every year since 1989. Of course, the first gold Philharmonic coins were minted before Austria adopted the euro currency, so pre-2002 mintages have a face value of 2,000 Austrian schillings (abbreviated as öS or just S).

The Münze Österreich (Austrian Mint) even used exactly the same design on the Austrian silver philharmonic (2008-present) and platinum Philharmonic (2016-present) coins. Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke.

Since 2014, gold Philharmonic coins are regularly issued in five weights: 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz (just like American eagles) plus a miniscule 1/25 oz coin. 

There were also two special and very limited issues: a huge 2004 1kg gold Philharmonic called the “big Phil,” and a supermassive 2009 20 oz. gold Philharmonic limited to just 6,027 total coins minted.

Despite this variety, the 1 oz gold Philharmonic has been a top-selling bullion coin year after year.

How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.

Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time.

How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes.

How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships.

Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.

Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box.

Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.

Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California. We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.

No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.

Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.

No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.

My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection.
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.

What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
