Euro Coins: Highly Prized Assets
The Euro gold bullion coin
is issued by leading economic powerhouses in the Eurozone to commemorate specific occasions, places or events. The greatest selection comes from Germany who began producing commemorative gold coins in 2002
when the country stopped minting the Deutsche Mark
and reverted to the collective Euro coin.
Many of the coins are intimately linked with UNESCO, an organisation which is responsible for the protection of historical towns and buildings. Some of the Euro coins, such as the 2004 Bamberg
gold coin and the 2012 Aachener Dom
, celebrate places and historical buildings that are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The other towns that feature in the UNESCO series of Euro gold coins are Quedlinburg
and Gartenreich Dessau-Wörlitz
. A smaller denomination of 1/8oz Gold ‘Deutscher Wald Buche’
was introduced in 2011.
Other commemorative years worthy of note is the 2006 World Cup gold coin
which was issued to celebrate Germany hosting the world’s most famous football competition. In 2013, a special series was launched for collectors featuring the German Forest

The Euro gold and silver coins can be found in abundance as each country celebrates different events and places and each coin has a unique design. On the obverse side, all the German coins feature the spread Eagle which is the signature symbol for the Federal Republic of Germany.

Commemorative coins from Austria and France feature unique designs depending on the occasion or place that is being marked. All coins feature the Euro banknote and the purity of metal. The reverse side of the coins also carry a wide variety of unique designs specific to each year and the symbol of the refinery the coin was minted.
The production of Gold and silver Euro coins
Germany has several minting refineries which are represented by a letter as follows: Berlin (A), Munich (D), Stuttgart (F), Karlsruhe (G), Hamburg (J). Each Mint has produced at least one Euro coin
since they were introduced in 2002 and the letter representing the Mint in which the coins were struck can be found on the reverse side.
In 2006, a directive was signed allowing Germany to mint commemorative coins
to the year 2021. In 2013, they produced a joint issue coin with France to commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Élysée in 1963. This is the first time a joint issue coin has been launched in the Eurozone.
Mints of Germany offer Quality Assurance
Germany has a proud tradition of minting which dates as far back as 1158 with the inauguration of the Bavarian Mint, the oldest company in Munich. A second mint was established in Berlin following the untimely death of the “Munzmeister” in Munich who was attacked and killed by furious investors when Munich coins were greatly devalued in 1290 because of their low silver content.
There is little chance of protestors invading Germany’s Mints today as the coins are made to the highest standards of minting and contain at least .9995 gold content. Most gold coins have a purity of 99.99% which makes them 24 carat.
The advanced techniques used by German Mints ensure protection for investors as the coins are very difficult to counterfeit. Each coin is inspected by hand so ensure it is in “mint condition” before it is shipped to the Federal Ministry of Finance.
