The success of the world famous Vienna Philharmonic bullion coin is not only limited to gold alone. Struck in pure silver, the silver Vienna Philharmonic has also proved to be a massive hit with investors.
When the Austrian Mint first issued Vienna Philharmonic coins in silver in February 2008, it was the first time that a European silver bullion coin had been brought on to the market featuring silver of 99.9 per cent purity. The market had long been waiting for a product of these characteristics and within a month of the date of issue, the millionth coin was struck. By the end of 2008, eight million Vienna Philharmonic coins in silver had been sold. Since sales began on 1 February 2008, this silver coin has been struck exclusively in the 1 ounce version and in a quantity that reflects market demand.
