The Vienna Philharmonic is currently the only European bullion coin with a face value depicted in euros, although it is only legal tender in Austria. The 1/10oz Gold Vienna Philharmonic had a face value of ATS (Austrian Shillings) 200 from 1991 until 2001, but the 2014 issue is denominated in euros. More than 800 years ago, Duke Leopold VI of Austria decided to strike coins from the silver paid as bounty for the release of Richard the Lionheart, marking the beginning of the history of minting in Vienna. Since then, the Austrian Mint has been producing innovative coinage and currency, making it one of the oldest continuously-produced minting institutions in the world.
