Germany: 2022 Collector Coins
« on: February 02, 2021, 04:28:02 PM »
January 2021 is over, time to publish the list of German collector coins for 2022. ;D

There will be three new theme series: €5 (Cu-Ni/polymer) World of Insects, €10 (Cu-Ni/polymer) Service for the Society, and €20 (gold) Return of Wild Animals. More about these later.

The €10 series will start with a coin about care (as in elder care), quite possibly inspired by the Coronavirus pandemic. And it seems that this year's €25 Christmas coin is the first in a new series too; in 2022 that will be continued with another Christmas related design.

The list; currently a mix of German and English. :)  I already added a few links primarily to English Wikipedia pages ...

(A) Cu-Ni/Polymer
€5 Wunderwelt Insekten (2022-2024) ** – 20 Oct
€10 Im Dienst der Gesellschaft (2022-2026): "Pflege" (care or nursing) – 7 Apr

(B) Silver
€20 Grimm Fairy Tales (2012-2023): "Rumpelstilzchen" – 20 Jan
€20 Annette von Droste-Hülshoff (born 225 years ago) – 24 Feb
€20 Kinderhilfswerk (50th anniversary), also see the organization's website (English overview) German Children's Fund – 12 May
€20 Corvey Abbey (founded 1200 years ago) – 22 Sep
€25 Christmas (2021-2025): Herrnhuter Stern – 24 Nov

(C) Gold
€20 Rückkehr der Wildtiere (2022-2027): Kegelrobbe (Grey Seal) – 20 Jun
€50 Musikinstrumente (2018-2022): Konzertgitarre – 8 Aug
€100 Säulen der Demokratie (2020-2022): Freiheit – 4 Oct

The €25 piece will be pure silver (Ag 999) and have a "plate" shape again. As for the Pillars of Democracy (€100) series, see here.

** The €5 piece will probably not have that translucent effect; the ministry's description refers to "attractive color" design. Hmm.

A few designs we already know, as they parts of theme series. The "Rumpelstilzchen" €20 coin from the Grimm Brothers Fairy Tales series was designed by Katrin Pannicke ...

The €50 "guitar" coin (Musical Instruments series) was designed by Jordi Truxa. That is, he did the image side; the eagle/value side - same for all issues in that series - was done by Erich Ott.

Of course the designs of the newly announced coins are not known yet, but those of you who collect paper money (and quite possibly a few others) may have seen Annette von Droste-Hülshoff before. :) She was on the 20 DM note that circulated between 1992 and 2001; the attached image is from the Bundesbank's website.

Updated reply #1 with the planned issue dates. (Source: Federal Ministry of Finance.) The €5 coin will be colored but not have a polymer ring, it seems. We will see – the piece won't come until October 2022 anyway. :)
