Here is this new collector item or numismatic product:



10 Euro (ø 28,8 mm / g), tri-material: a copper-nickel center planchet (81% Cu, 19% Ni) within transparent polymer ring, within a copper-nickel outer ring (75% Cu, 25% Ni), 9,80 g. theor. mint weight, mintage 350.000 , axis medal alignment ↑↑ (0°), plain edge with lettering: “LUFT BEWEGT • LUFT BEWEGT • “ (“AIR MOVES • AIR MOVES • “),
Obv.: BUNDESREPUBLIK / G / 10 EURO / 2019 / DEUTSCHLAND , eagle at center, value below on center planchet; country name, mint mark G, date and 12 stars on the outer ring.
Rev.: IN DER LUFT , a paraglider, flying r. between mountains.

Maybe i would like it if minted in silver.  :-\

Think i will buy a decent Roman follis with this one day.

Well, I find the concept with the transparent ring attractive. And if you want silver in a collector coin, get a €20 piece. :)  What I do not like is the look of the eagle (as for who designed the piece, see here). As if the artist had pondered: "Hmm, should I put an eagle there? Nah. But then that is a requirement. Hmm, maybe a small one will do ..."

Here is a set of five €10 I gobbled together through trades (I got hold of ''A'' only).
