Information about Platinum Philharmonic 1/1 oz
The Philharmonic coins have always been one of the most popular investment coins of the world. And still, it had not been available in platinum yet.
Platinum was already used in Ancient Egypt, with small deposits found in jewelry dated to around 3000 BC. During the Middle Ages, it lost its significance, as gold seekers in Spanish colonies dismissed it as a worthless side material. Today, platinum is traded as the most valuable precious metal besides gold, owing to its unique physical qualities. The non-corrosive stability, softness and malleability make platinum the perfect metal for high quality jewelry.
The Platinum Philharmonic is an exceptional alternative to investment in gold and one of our favorites in a new guise.
The design of the platinum coin
The motif of the platinum coin is identical to its gold and silver siblings: the front of the platinum Philharmonic coin shows the famous big pipe organ of the golden hall at the Wiener Musikverein. The reverse depicts instruments of the Viennese orchestra — a horn, a bassoon, a harp, four violins and a cello in the middle.
