Thomas Pesendorfer designed the reverse side of the Austrian Gold Bullion Coin.

The design is a combination of musical instruments that make up the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

The text "WIENER PHILHARMONIKER" ("Vienna Philharmonic"), is displayed across the top of the gold coin.

Before joining the European Union in 2001, the Philharmonic gold bullion coins were valued in schillings.  From 2002 to the present day, the bullion coin has been valued in euros (€).
