The motif of the platinum coin is identical to that of its fellow gold and silver Vienna Philharmonic coins: on the front of the platinum Vienna Philharmonic coin is the large, famous organ in the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein. Shown on the reverse of the platinum Vienna Philharmonic coin are instruments of the Vienna Philharmonic; a horn, a bassoon, a harp and four violins, with a cello in the centre. The Philharmonic coins have always been some of the most popular bullion coins in the world. Until recently, our favourite coin didn’t come in platinum.
Platinum was even used in ancient Egypt; it was found in small quantities of jewellery, dating to around 3000 BC. It lost some of its importance in the Middle Ages, when gold prospectors in the Spanish colonies mistakenly regarded it as a worthless by-product.
Due to its unique physical properties, platinum, along with gold, is traded as the most valuable precious metal. Among other things, its resistance to corrosion, as well as its softness and malleability, make it particularly suitable for the production of high-quality jewellery.
