Purchase the 2020 2×1 oz Germania Beasts Fafnir Silver Space Red and Green Set from JM Bullion and you will receive limited mintage rounds featuring brilliant designs in bold red and green colors. These silver rounds ship in capsules, as well as blisterpacks with both metallic and 3D effects. Each set ships with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse is the image of Fafnir. He is wrapping his torso around the front of the round, and at the top, his body seems to stop and vanish. This design is picked up on the reverse. The front side of the round is where you will see Fafnir’s tongue and claws. The inscriptions “Fafnir” and “1 oz Ag 999.9” can be found on the obverse.
The reverse imagery continues where the front left off. The lower half of Fafnir’s body wraps around the iconic image of the Bicephalous Eagle. Fafnir’s body makes an infinity symbol-like shape across both sides the round.
The Bicephalous Eagle is a two-headed eagle. The two-headed eagle is the Roman mythological symbol for Janus, the god of all origins. Janus is the guardian of doors, bridges, gates, and passages. The Bicephalous Eagle’s two heads each face different directions, symbolizing both the past and future.
This round set contains two rounds with the same obverse and reverse designs. However, one round features a red Fafnir, while the other is green. Both rounds are gilded.
The Germania Mint’s Beast Series tells the tales of some of Ancient Germany’s oldest and most horrific creatures. These beasts are known for their scary appearances, as well as their wild adventures. Tales of these mythological creatures have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.
