The Germania Mint combines .9999 pure silver content and distinctive designs on its silver rounds, making new options from this mint particularly attractive to numismatists.

    The Allegories Series

    A popular new collection from the Germania Mint is the Allegories Series. The mint describes this series as depicting the female personifications of various nations, from the European continent to South America and North America. The debut issue in the series is the Britannia & Germania release. Each issue in the collection will feature Germania, the female personification of Germany and the German people, alongside another nation’s personification. The available designs in the series include:

    • Britannia & Germania: In a nod to the peace between the nations that exists today, the obverse of the first release includes the figure of Britannia standing with her guard down but her back slightly turned toward Germania. Britannia has her shield with the Union Jack upon it resting at her side and her trident cradled in her right arm. She wears a Roman helmet in this depiction with a tall plume, rather than traditional depictions featuring a Corinthian helmet. Germania approaches from the right with her hand outstretched to the shoulder of Britannia. Germania’s shield with the double-headed eagle rests at her side as her sword remains in its scabbard. Germania wears a laurel crown on her head.

    Common Reverse Design

    The mint describes its crowned shield on the reverse as bearing the symbolism of shared moral principles and noble values recognized by people around the world. This quartered shield has various elements that require breaking down to understand the symbolism behind them:

    • Oak wreath border: This symbolizes loyalty, stability, and national unity.
    • Shield: Wielded by warriors for thousands of years, the shield represents truth, faithfulness, and trust.
    • Crown: In heraldry, the crown represents authority, nobility, and chivalry.
    • Bicephalous Eagle: The symbol of the Germania Mint, the Bicephalous eagle is similar to the double-headed eagle used by the German Empire of the 19th and early-20th centuries. The heads face opposite directions in a nod to the past and the future.
    • Checkered pattern: Represents wisdom and prudence.
    • Three wildflowers on a golden ribbon: These represent unity, integrity, and freedom.
    • Wild boar: A symbol of might and power

    Mintage and Packaging for the Allegories Series

    The Germania Mint offers the designs in the Allegories Series in three versions for each release. These options include a 1 oz silver rounds, 2 oz silver rounds, and 5 oz silver rounds. All of the rounds have the same diameter, so as the weight goes up the thickness of each round increases, with the 5 oz silver round dramatically thicker than the other two versions. Mintage for each weight include:

    • 1 oz: 25,000 silver rounds
    • 2 oz: 2,500 silver rounds
    • 5 oz: 500 silver rounds

    The 1 oz rounds in the series come with a protective plastic capsule and presentation box. The 2 oz and 5 oz options feature a protective capsule. All versions of The Allegories Silver Rounds include a Certificate of Authenticity.

    About the Allegories

    Germania is a popular theme for the mint. This personification of Germany and the German people originates from the same point in history as Britannia, the first release from the Allegories Series. As the Roman Empire spread across Europe, the newly gained provinces were given names in the Latin tongue. While Britain was referred to as Britannia, the regions that now comprise modern Germany were known collectively as Germania.

    Over time, as the influence and control of the Roman Empire crumbled away, the people of these nations used those same terms as a means of national identity. In the case of the female personifications that arose, symbolism was added to show the collective strength and national unity of the people who lived in those regions. Below are details on the Allegories featured in the series:

    • Germania: Commonly associated with the Romantic Era and the later Revolutions of 1848 that swept Europe, the figure of Germania was popularly used by the German Empire of the late-19th and early-20th This female personification has long, flowing hair and wears a laurel crown on her head symbolizing heroism. She carries the imperial sword as a representation of power and willingness to fight, while defending herself with a shield that often features the double-headed eagle used by the German Empire.
    • Britannia: The image of Britannia has been in use on British coins since the formal union of England and Scotland in the early-18th Her figure speaks directly to the maritime prowess of Britain. She is often depicted near the water’s edge, a nod to Britain’s coastal defenses throughout the island. She wields the trident as her weapon of choice, a tool which ancient mythology suggested could control the seas. Britannia wears a Corinthian helmet in many depictions, though the Germania Mint Allegories Series design features her with a Roman helmet and plume. Like Germania, Britannia defends herself with a shield, but hers bears the Union Jack flag of the United Kingdom.
