Quote from: chrisild on September 04, 2018, 06:12:38 PMThis will be next year's €5 coin. The theme side was designed by Peter Lasch. (Stefanie Radtke designed the eagle side for the entire series.) Interesting side note:The German term for "Moderate Zone" is "Gemäßigte Zone". See the s-sharp in the first word? That indicates the preceding vowel ä is long (pronunciation). Now the ß can never be at the beginning of a word, so for a long time there was no need for an uppercase equivalent.But sometimes people use all caps, in headlines, passports, etc. So a while ago we got, in addition to the lowercase ß - the uppercase ẞ character. However, the inscription on this coin uses the older GEMÄSSIGTE instead of GEMÄẞIGTE. Christian
