The new 2017 5 Euro Tropical Zone Cupronickel Coin with its distinctive red Polymer Ring is an essential buy for collectors. The nickel alloy coin is the first in an exciting new German Euro series entitled Climate Zones of the World from the Official Sales Agency for Collector's Coins of the Federal Republic of Germany. It’s one of the year’s most eagerly anticipated releases and demand is already extremely high.
Queues formed outside the Munich branch of the Federal Bank for this unique Tropical Zone 5 Euro coin on the first day of issue. The coin is made from two pieces of copper-nickel alloy, or Cupronickel, that have been connected by a stunning ring insert of red polymer. The eagerly awaited 2017 coin is set to echo the success of the 2106 5 Euro Planet Earth coin. The Planet Earth coin featured a blue polymer ring between a central and outer portion of metal. It was the first time that such a coin had been created using an innovative new process developed by Schuler AG, a leading German press manufacturer.
As the inaugural release in a new collector’s series, interest in the new 2017 Tropical Zone 5 Euro was always going to be high. It’s only the second coin ever (after the Planet Earth 5 Euro) to feature a polymer insert and its red ring is the ideal complement to its striking design. The Planet Earth coin enjoyed unprecedented success for a coin that is not made from one of the big four precious metals. The glowing blue polymer ring was original and unusual and collectors all over the world clamoured to get their hands on it.
The Climate Zones of the World series of 5 Euro coins will be issued annually for five years. The 2017 Tropical Zone coin is, of course, the first. The inner section of the coin’s obverse shows a tropical parrot in flight above rainforest treetops. A ‘fish-eye’ style has been used to illustrate the height of these great trees and the parrot approaches with his claws extended and wings high as if he is about to land. Two small birds can be seen circling the edges of the treetops, as if in the distance.
The outer ring shows another four smaller birds and the design is superbly brought together by a dazzling red polymer ring that might well denote the heat of the tropics. An inscription reading TROPISCHE ZONE sits at the lower left of the outer Cupronickel ring. The reverse of the coin features the heraldic eagle that is a symbol of Germany in the centre with the mintmark of the manufacturing mint over its head.
