Germania Mint introduces an extraordinary Collector's edition "2019 Germania 6 Precious Metals", a coin ennobled with 6 precious metals– Silver, Ruthenium, Yellow Gold, Rose Gold, Palladium and White Rhodium. The mintage of the coin is certified up to 500 pieces. Each coin has been numbered, with the figures placed on the relief and not on the edge as usually.
"Germania" is the Latin term for Germany, from which the name "Germany" is used in English language today. Due to the connection with patriotic feelings, this word was present mainly in German literature and poetry. In ancient times the area inhabited by Germans east of the Rhine and north of the Danube rivers was called Germania. At that time its first personifications on coins and reliefs appeared, depicting a brave woman - the guardian of the nation.
The inner ring plated with gold emphasizes the precision of the ruthenium-plated inscriptions. Ruthenium dark background is in contrast to a shiny golden dress, a rose gold coat and a palladium shield. The head with arms remains in pure silver, while the sword is plated with white ruthenium. The whole design is finished by a pure silver rim and numbering on the relief, which makes that kind of ennobling most unique in numismatics.
On the other side of the coin the background is plated with ruthenium. All raised elements of the relief are precisely covered with gold: the two-headed eagle, laurel wreath and the inscriptions. The whole motif is surrounded by a silver rim, which is a challenging technique to achieve on a coin.
