Germany: 2020 Collector Coins
« on: January 29, 2019, 03:31:42 PM »
In 2020 Germany plans to issue five silver €20 collector coins:

The Wolf and the Seven Young Goats (from the Grimm Fairy Tales series)
Ludwig van Beethoven (born 250 years ago)
Hieronymus Carl Friedrich Freiherr von Münchhausen (born 300 years ago)
UEFA Euro 2020 (Football Championship, 12 cities in 12 countries)
Freiburg (founded 900 years ago)

These are silver (Ag 925) coins; the BU version will be issued at face while the proof version will be surcharged. Then there will be the "usual" theme series:

€5 Climate Zones (Cu-Ni - colored polymer ring): Subpolar Zone
€10 Air Moves (Cu-Ni - transparent polymer ring): On Shore
€20 Gold (Domestic Birds): White Stork
€50 Gold (Musical Instruments): Orchestra Horn (Crook)

The €5 and €10 coins can be had at face (the proof version is more expensive), the gold pieces are surcharged.

Here we have the 2020 Grimm Fairy Tales coin. It was designed by Adelheid Fuss. Note that the text around the wolf-and-goats scene is in all caps; we do have an uppercase ß in German -> ẞ ... But in my opinion it just looks bad when that one, as the only character on this coin, "sticks out" like this. ::)
