For the first time in the history of numismatics, on the subsequent coins of the “The Allegories” series, Germania will “meet” with legendary national personifications in symbolic circumstances.
The first coin from the Allegories features a personifications of two historical lands: Germania and Britannia. On earlier coins Germania has preserved a laurel wreath with a shield. This time her sword rests at peace in a scabbard attached to her waist and she reaches out her hand in a sensitive gesture to Britannia. So far Lady Britannia was presented as a beautiful and thoughtful woman. On the new coin she is surrounded by her characteristic attributes – a Roman helmet with a plume, a shield and a trident, which refers to the former maritime power of her land.
This 5oz coin has a mintage limited to 500 pieces.
