GERMANIA

“Germania” is a classic bullion coin, issued once a year since 2019. It was created from the passion for numismatics by Germania Mint in cooperation with Kurowski Group’s product development. Natalia Danysz designed the coin according to her interpretation of the personification of Germania and the two-headed eagle. The effect corresponds perfectly with the concept behind the new bullion, which arose from the need to create a recognizable coin of European origin. Germania evokes the times of European tribes, honor and bravery, when the region was inhabited by clans that gave origin to the future nations of Europe. The choice of the personification of Germania as the main motif of the obverse was obvious – strong, valiant and devoted to the matter. The reverse with a two-headed eagle, a symbol of Roman times, will accompany us through the whole series planned for 2019. The eagle itself and the surrounding it laurel are associated with wisdom, victory and the rule of law, which all together with the rest of the coin’s symbolism creates strong associations with European values. Germania silver bullion met with an enthusiastic reception from collectors all around the world. They appreciated both its aesthetic aspects, as well as the value of the coin itself, with its weight and quality. The coins are being sold… Germania bullion is not a legal tender.

The obverse of the „Germania and Britannia” coin depicts some of the most famous national feminine personifications in a historically meaningful situation. Both ladies are presented as beautiful women with flowing hair, dressed in long dresses. Germania has a victory symbolizing laurel wreath in her hair and Britannia wears a galea on her head – a helmet with a plume. The Germanian Amazon has an imperial sword (Reichsschwert) by the belt and supports a shield with an image of a two-headed eagle. Lady Britannia on the other hand, has her trident and shield put down, while she is turned away in a doubting pose from Germania, who reaches out to her. The symbolism of the scene refers directly to today’s challenge of the European Union, which faces a timid withdrawal of the United Kingdom, that is struggling with doubts about the country’s future.

On the coin’s reverse there is the two-headed eagle, that is a symbol appearing in Roman mythology associated with Janus – the god of all origins, guardian of doors, gates, passages and bridges, the patron of allied agreements and arrangements. Heads facing the opposite symbolize the past and the future. The lightning bolts held in the claws of an eagle are a divine attribute, symbolizing strength and the power of creation and destruction.
