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.

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.
