The 'Deutscher Wald': a remarkable gold coin series reveling Germany's Black Forest
The Deutscher Wald (German Forest) series
of .9999 pure proof quality gold coins was launched in 2010 to pay tribute to one of Germany's greatest Natural treasures, the world famous Black Forest and its incredible flora.
The series became an instant success, and the first issue (the EICHE-Oak) is already a rare collectible piece. There are several reasons why these coins are treasured in the gold bullion market by both savvy investors and updated collectors.
These superb 24 karat gold coins are struck by German mints renowned for the impeccable manufacturing of their products. Yet despite their market value and immense collectible appeal, the Deutscher Wald
are surprisingly affordable.
These coins are also the first in Europe to carry a nominal value of 20 euros, which certainly gives them extra worth as there are very few small gold bullion coins denominated in Europe's common currency.
Since the introduction of the euro such coins are in great demand, and for the past 5 years gold lovers have had a new opportunity to combine their passion for collecting coins with a great investment. However, the yearly mintage of the Deutscher Wald is strictly limited to 200,000 pieces (40,000 coins per mint) so you will have to act quickly if you want to add one of these rare and precious coins to your collection.

Finally the cultural significance of the Deutscher Wald cannot be overlooked. The "Black Forest" has been described as a longing landscape in poetry, fables and legends of romance since the early 19th century. History and culture declared the land a symbol of Germanic Art as the nature mysticism of the stylized German national myth Nibelungenlied comes to show.
Without a doubt, Deutscher Wald gold coins are must-have coins
both as a clever investment and as an alluring collectible piece. Needless to say, they also make priceless gifts that will be treasured by the recipient.
