This issue celebrates the New Year’s concert performed yearly by the Vienna Philharmonic.

It has long been a Philharmonic tradition at the New Year to present a program consisting of the lively and at the same time nostalgic music from the vast repertoire of the Johann Strauss family and its contemporaries. These concerts not only delight the audiences in the Musikverein in Vienna, but also enjoy great international popularity through the world wide television broadcast, which now reaches over 90 countries.

The reverse was designed and engraved by Herbert Waehner and features cellists and bassists performing before the silhouette of a conductor in action. The background is filled by a pipe organ decorated with flowers, as is customary for the annual New Year’s concert.

The obverse was designed by Helmut Andexlinger. At the center of the coin is the number 5, indicating the five-euro denomination of the issue. Surrounding this feature are nine shields that represent the nine federal provinces of Austria. Inscribed along the rim of the design is REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH and EURO.
