Although the 100 Euro Trier gold coin was minted in 2009 by the German government, Trier which is the oldest city in Germany was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list in 1986. There were only minted a total of 320,000 gold coins, therefore each of the five German mints issued 64,000 gold coins.
The 100 Euro Trier gold coin weighs, like all the other coins from this series, 15.55 grams or 1/2 troy ounces of gold. The purity of the gold used in manufacturing these gold coins commemorating Trier, the oldest German city, is of 99.90% or 24 carats. This gold coin also has as a characteristic the diameter of 28 mm.
The obverse of the 100 Euro Trier gold coin depicts some of the oldest Roman buildings in Germany in a majestic collage by Michael Otto, the outstanding Cathedral of St Peter and the Church of Our Lady (“Liebfrauenkirche"). In addition, the Porta Nigra, the Igeler Column, the Konstantin Basilica and the Imperial Baths are also represented on the coin. And all the monuments are placed on a Roman bridge over the Moselle. The inscriptions that surround these impressive engraved buildings are “UNESCO WELTERBE, RÖMISCHE BAUDENKMÄLER, DOM UND LIEBFRAUENKIRCHE IN TRIER".
The reverse of the 100 Euro Trier gold coin illustrates, like all the German coins, the German Federal eagle which is accompanied by the 12 stars found on the European flag, the minting authority which is the “BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND", the denomination of “100 EURO", and “2009" the year the coin was minted. The letter “A", found near the inscription of 100 Euro, indicates that this gold coin which is illustrated on our website was minted in Berlin.
The 100 Euro Trier gold coin which was minted in 2009, as well as all the gold coins minted in order to commemorate the German cities added on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list, offer investors an opportunity that should not be missed.
Gold is never a bad investment and is something that should be bought at the right time. And gold coins like the 100 Euro Trier gold coin should be kept until its value increases. Therefore, investors should enjoy the sight of their German gold coin until the demand for this coin reaches a peak. At that point, the premium of the coin will increase and the coin can be incredibly profitable. If the gold spot price increases at the same time then it is even better.
