From The Hands Of A Master
Thomas Pesendorfer stood as the Chief Engraver of the Austrian Mint when this coin was first envisioned, and it was through his hand that the proper amount of elegance and prestige was wrought into its design. So skilled was his design of this most notable of Austrian silver coins that it was rewarded for its excellence in design, and led to an increase in the prestige and respect given to the works of the Austrian mint. So it is that that Austrian mint is recognized as a world leader among mints, and that it became available to be a prized and valuable part of your family’s investment.
The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
For all things there is a place that is considered the heart of its craft, and for Philharmonic Orchestras that place is the Musikverein Golden Hall. Its prestige comes from the establishment of the pre-eminent VPO, and the strident measures many will take to be counted amongst its august members. It takes three years of performing for other orchestras and ballet companies before one can even be considered for membership.
