A new one-ounce silver bullion coin has been introduced by Austria. It features essentially the same design as appears on Austria’s gold Philharmonic series. It is a beautiful and familiar design.
I was able to see the new coins up close at the Austrian Mint booth in Berlin. Unfortunately, I did not buy one. I should have.
I know the coin will soon be as easily available in the United States as the gold pieces are, but I missed my chance at bragging rights, to donate a catalog plate coin, or to be the first person on the block to have one.
I am sure what I could have done with it would have more than made the purchase price well worth the spending. Besides, it would always be one troy ounce of silver. That’s not a bad thing to own these days.
