Post by: Arminius on April 27, 2019, 09:46:17 AM
Here is this new collector item or numismatic product:

(http://www.arminius-numismatics.com/coppermine1414/cpg1414/albums/userpics/10001/normal_D10EuLuftGst.jpg)

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.

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 (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,41067.msg269115.html#msg269115)). 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).
