Germania Mint introduces an extraordinary Collector's Edition “2019 Germania Space Red”. The coin is ennobled with a brand new coating, equally mysterious as the figure of Germania itself. The mintage of the coin is certified up to 500 pieces. Each coin has been numbered using a new method, in which the number is placed on the relief and not on the edge as usually
"Germania" is the Latin term for Germany, from which the name "Germany" is used in English language today. Due to the connection with patriotic feelings, this word was present mainly in German literature and poetry. In ancient times the area inhabited by Germans east of the Rhine and north of the Danube rivers was called Germania. At that time its first personifications on coins and reliefs appeared, depicting a brave woman - the guardian of the nation.
The figure of Germania and all inscriptions remain in pure silver, while rest of the coin is covered with a new coating called “Space Blue”. That kind of innovative galvanic ennobling technique creates a noble and metallic character on the surface. The effect is exceptional to achieve on pure silver coins.
On the other side of the coin the “Space Red” coating is also placed selectively, which results with blue metallic background and pure silver elements of the relief. The "Space Red" ennobling creates a transparent surface, which allows to keep all of the details and the mirror surface undisturbed.
