New Releases from the German Mints

Blue Planet Earth: Discover the World First!

At the Money World Fair in Berlin this past February, Germany’s Parliament State Secretary Michael Meister presented the Planet Earth coin. This is the first-ever €5 coin to be produced from a German Mint, as previous releases have always been €2 or less. Each coin is comprised of three parts, a copper-nickel outer ring, a copper-nickel inner ring, and, for the first time ever in numismatics history, a polymer ring embedded in the coin!

After word of this design began to spread, it quickly became an internet sensation. In fact, this release gained so much popularity that German citizens were lining up at the banks to purchase these coins! The banks actually had to implement a one-coin-per-household limit to ensure that everyone had a chance to access this brilliant release.

Five different Mints in Germany will be producing these coins: Berlin (A), Munich (D), Stuttgart (F), Karlsruhe (G), and Hamburg (J). Each Mint will produce coins with a polymer ring with a different shade of blue to identify the Mint origin, in addition to the tell-tale mint mark. This is an astronomical undertaking for these German Mints!
