Moldavite is a kind of transparent body in the color of green bottle. It is believed that it was created as a result of a meteorite impact, the remnant of which is the Ries crater in the south of Germany. The impact force was so great that the Moldavite remains are now found mainly in southern Bohemia and southern Moravia.
"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 figure of Germania and all inscriptions remain in pure silver, while rest of the coin is covered with a new coating ”. That kind of innovative galvanic ennobling technique creates a noble and metallic character on the surface. The effect is exceptional to achieve on pure silver coins.
On the other side of the coin the “Space Blue” coating is also placed selectively, which results with blue metallic background and pure silver elements of the relief. The "Space Blue" ennobling creates a transparent surface, which allows to keep all of the details and the mirror surface undisturbed.
