This issue honors the 275th anniversary of one of Germany’s most well-known and admired national orchestras, the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig.

Founded in 1743, the Gewandhaus Orchestra claims the distinction as being the oldest continuing orchestra in Germany founded by the city’s ordinary citizenry, as older orchestras were usually founded by royal patronages or societies. In the beginning, the orchestra performed in private homes until they found a permanent home at the “Three Swans” Tavern in Leipzig. However, in 1780, due to complaints by local residents about over-zealous behavior by some concert-goers, the tavern was no longer considered a suitable venue and, as such, the mayor and city council of Leipzig offered to renovate one story of the local Gewandhaus — a building once used by textile merchants now set aside for the orchestra’s use (Gewandhaus literally means Garment House).

Just eight years after the Orchestra relocated to its new home, the famed composer and performer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) came to Leipzig and performed at the Gewandhaus, and it is possible that this performance ensured that the name of the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig would be firmly placed on the map of excellence. This reputation was only increased further when in 1835, Felix Mendelssohn (1809–1847), became the orchestra’s music director, a post he retained until his death in 1847.

The obverse depicts the logo of the Orchestra along with a selection of text highlighting the names of outstanding musical personalities. At the center are two hands conducting with a baton.

The reverse features Germany’s official insignia, a stylized eagle with the inscription BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND (Federal Republic of Germany).
