20 Euro 'Deutscher Wald' gold coins: A prime offering from Germany
The 20 Euro Deutscher Wald gold coin series is a new line of commemorative German coins. It is the first time Germany has produced a 20 Euro 1/8 oz gold coin and their uniqueness and size make them an excellent gift idea. The German Mint first began making commemorative gold bullion coins in 2002 when the country ditched the Deutschmark in favour of the Euro. To keep their historical currency in the minds of the public, the German government decided to memorialise the Deutschmark in gold bullion. The first coin paid dedication to the new European Monetary Union and the following year kicked-off a series of German towns that had been acknowledged as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The
20 Euro Deutscher Wald side show began in 2010 with the launch of the Oak. This was followed by the Birch in 2011, the Spruce in 2012, the Pine in 2013, the Chestnut in 2014 and the last of the series is Linden. The coin series is minted in five of Germany's leading mints, Berlin, Munich, Karslruhe, Hamburg and Stuttgart, but only 40,000 golds are manufactured annually. Therefore, if you want to add the Deustcher Wald series to your coin collection make sure to get in early!
'Deutscher Wald' description

The production of the 'Deutscher Wald' coins
Germany does not have one several mint that produces commemorative coins, thus the workload is shared between the countries five leading refineries, each of whom carry their own identification mintmark; Berlin – A, Munich – D, Stuttgart – F, Karlsruhe – G, and Hamburg – J. The
Deustcher Wald series only features six coins, the first of which was launched in 2010 and ended in 2015 with the Linden. Given the reputation of precision German engineering, consumers can be assured that the coins are manufactured to the highest quality.
German Mint Quality Assurance
Germany has produced gold bullion coins since 1873 when they introduced the Goldmark but this was removed from the gold standard after the First World War. The delay in bullion production however, did not disrupt the German's knack and determination to develop techniques that allowed them to produce gold bullion coins to the highest standards. In modern day Germany, the production of coins is shared between five mints, all of which have individual techniques but each capable of producing highly manufactured products. The German Federal Republic take crime prevention very seriously and incorporate the latest security techniques in the products to help protect investors against receiving counterfeit goods. Investors can therefore be assured they are receiving merchandise that are 100% authentic.
