FAQs regarding our investment products

Icon InvestmentProducts

Our Vienna Philharmonic coins always have a year on the obverse. The gold ducats, gulden and crowns do not indicate a production year, as these coins are restrikes.

Münze Österreich offers investors gold bars weighing between one gramme and one kilo in 24-carat gold. The engraving of the bars is primarily of informative significance. It provides information on the manufacturer, weight, fineness and serial number.

The Münze Österreich logo guarantees the high standard of its gold bars. They can be traded all over the world and at the same time are unique due to their individual number.

Münze Österreich's "Good Delivery" bars are produced by the Swiss company Argor-Hereaeus SA on its behalf. The quality of the bars meets the highest international standards and therefore ensures worldwide acceptance at all times. The information on bars and packaging confirms authenticity and value.

Goldbars Münze Österreich

Münze Österreich purchases gold exclusively from certified suppliers that are designated "Good Delivery Refiners" by the London Bullion Market Association. The gold we receive is checked for authenticity before it enters the production process.

Always the current year. In January there can be "overlaps" between the old and current year. We ship depending on the stock. There is no generally valid answer to this because we are unable to forecast the stock, i.e. the demand.

Vienna Philharmonic Coins

Cast bars (Good Delivery)
Cast bars are, as the name suggests, poured. This production technique is generally used for bars of 250 g or more. Casting gives the bars a coarser appearance and round edges, as well as a slightly duller surface (which does not mean a loss of quality).

Engraved bars (Good Delivery)
These bars are engraved like coins. They therefore have a finer surface than cast bars.

These are engraved bars with an additional security element: the Kinegram. The Kinegram is a patented technology developed by the Swiss company Landis & Gyr Communication. Münze Österreich's Kinegram bars feature a jumping Lipizzaner horse surrounded by additional design elements.

As we generally do not "buy back" products, we are unable to provide any information on a possible reduction in value. Please contact your bank or a coin dealer regarding purchase prices.

We do not store the bar numbers, therefore we are unable to trace them.
