I think Aiden read a very poorly worded news report, that gave the impression a new monster coin was on the way, however I think the report was actually referring to the €100,000 coin that was produced a couple or so years back, that has a bullion value of almost €1000,000.

Hmm, maybe so. The 2004 Big Phil was a 1,000 oz "coin", thus a bullion value of €685,000 ... and the next "monster" came from Canada, with 100 kg gold. Well, for some reason I am not really interested in buying any of the two. :)

This year's issues from Austria will be presented next month (15 October, I think). Not sure when or where that will be, sorry. That 20 oz piece will not be a new record in terms of size or weight, but I am pretty sure the Austrian Mint would not make those if it did not see a demand.

IN the muenz Cabinet of the Kunsthistoriches Muesem in Vienna is what I presume one of the Canadian monsters ( unless of course its a replica) on display. Its impressive but I think most collectos would have storage problems almost equivalent to those of the Yap coins

The 2004 coin had a very low mintage, I think 16 or so.  I was actualy surprised to see 2009 * 3 this year, but now makes sense if it is "only" 20 oz of gold.  I wonder who will be the 2009 Japanese buying those coins.  If anyone has an idea where the coin will be sold (the 20 oz one) I would love to go and take a look, perhaps even a picture.

Thanks,
Miguel

The new 20 oz "Philharmonics" gold coin wil be issued this week. The coins, with a weight of 622 grams each, should be available as from Friday 16 October. As mentioned earlier, this piece will have a limited mintage of 6027.

The price will be the current gold price plus 10 percent. Gold is at €715 per ounce, so if the piece could be purchased today, it would cost about 15,700 euro. Have your wallets at hand. :) 

Here is one of the photos from the advertising campaign. Looks quite interesting, that ... coin.
