The oak tree is revered by Germanic people. Ancient Germanic tribes believed that large, powerful oak trees were home to ghosts and gods. As such, Germanic people would worship at the base of oak tree trunks. It wasn’t just the tree itself that was revered though. The fruit of the oak tree, acorns, were considered a source of fertility and delivered magical abilities to those who consumed them.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Germania Oak Leaf Silver Rounds is the image of a large oak leaf with a single acorn shown alongside it. The background field of these silver rounds has an impressive braided finish to separate the bullion silver rounds in this relief from the proof counterparts. Inscriptions include “Oak Leaf” and “1 oz 9999 Fine Silver.”
The reverse face of 2019 Germania Oak Leaf Silver Rounds features the official crest of the Germania Mint. Based on Roman history and that of the 19th-century German Empire, the double-headed eagle is in the center. The double-headed eagle stems from Roman mythology and the god Janus, the one associated with origins and guardian of doors, gates, and other passages. The eagle clutches corkscrew double-headed arrows in each talon. There is a beaded border around the design field with inscriptions of “Germania,” “2019,” and “5 Mark.”
2019 Germania Oak Leaf Silver Rounds are available from the Germania Mint in this bullion release, as well as a 1 oz proof, 1 oz gold bullion round, and a 1 oz gold proof round.
