The 20 Euro Beech gold coin was minted in 2011 and is the second issued from a series designed to commemorate the German forest. The series started in 2010 and the first leave that appeared on the obverse of the gold coin was an oak leave. All these wonderful and simply designed gold coins have been minted in order to commemorate the German forest which accounts for one of the most beautiful natural places on earth.
With a weight of 3.89 grams and a purity of 99.99%, therefore made just from gold without any alloy, the 20 Euro Beech gold coin would be the dream of any investor or collector. At a weight of 1/8 troy ounces of pure gold, this tiny coin minted in 2011 and commemorating the German forest has a diameter of 17.5 mm.
These series of 20 Euro gold coins that are issued in order to celebrate every important tree from the German forest will have a total of six coins.
On the obverse a single beech leave is depicted. Beech trees account for approximately 15% of the German trees. The leave is engraved in 99.99% pure gold and was designed by Frantisek Chochola. The inscriptions are: “DEUTSCHER WALD, BUCHE".
The back of the 20 Euro Beech gold coin is typical for these 20 Euro gold coins and shows the German eagle and the 12 European stars. It also shows the following inscriptions: “BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND", the minting year “2011", the denomination “20 EURO", and the letter “F" which means that the gold coin illustrated on our website has been minted in Stuttgart.
In 2011 the total of gold coins of this series issued was just 200,000 which makes it a scarce mintage for the 20 Euro Beech gold coin. It is also the reason why demand is greater than the supply which will increase its value in the future. Investors that will preserve the German Beech gold coin in the Brilliant Uncirculated condition will be able to make a profit when these gold coins have become extremely rare.
