The Gold Euro - German Nature and History in Precious Metal
With the introduction of the common European currency in 2002, the first gold coins with face values of 100 and 200 Euro were also issued by the Federal Republic of Germany. The coins are sold via the official sale outlet for collectors' coins of the Federal Republic of Germany, referred to as the VfS for short, which is directly accountable to the Federal Office for Central Services and Unresolved Property Issues (BADV). The VfS coins are not investment but rather collectors' coins with a corresponding minting quality and craftsmanship. This means that the coins are produced and packaged with great care. Whereas investment coins may pick up smaller scratches during production, such defects are excluded in the case of collectors' coins.
Three different series of precious metal coins are currently issued by the VfS. The 20 euro collectors' coin in 925 silver, the 20 euro collector coin in gold and the 100 euro collector coin, also in gold. The silver coins are dedicated to a Grimm fairy tale on the one hand and to important anniversaries in German history on the other: From the 200th birthday of Ernst Litfaß to the 125th birthday of Otto Dix or Nelly Sachs. While the motif on the 20 euro gold coins was the German forest until 2015, a new series started in 2016 featuring indigenous singing birds. The most important VfS series - the 100 euro coin - is dedicated to UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Germany. Starting with the World Heritage City of Quedlinburg, the latest coin in the series is dedicated to the Old Town of Regensburg.
