Having made their debut in 2008, Vienna Philharmonic coins are fairly new to the silver bullion market. Surprising really given the long and illustrious history of the Austrian Mint where the coins are manufactured. Historical records show the Austrian Mint dates back to around the 12th Century and was established by Duke Leopold VI of Austria after receiving a ransom for the release of King Richard I of England. Richard the Lionheart was passing through Austria on his return home from the crusades and was captured and imprisoned by Leopold. The Crown of England had no option other than to pay the bounty. It is thought that the Austrian Mint was founded with the proceeds of the ransom.
The Austrian Mint take the forgery of coins very seriously and use advanced technology and the latest techniques to manufacture coins that are impossible to counterfeit. Engraved into the design of the coins are special security features that enable experienced dealers like the experts at CoinInvest to determine the authenticity of the coins.
