Oktoberfest Came Early – World’s First Bottle Cap-Shaped Coin!

Beer Cap-Shaped Coin

First-Ever Beer Cap-Shaped Coin

Celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Bavarian Purity Laws that standardized beer as we know it today!

In 1516, William IV, Duke of Bavaria, executed the Bavarian Beer Purity Law, also known as the “Reinheitsgebot.” The Purity Law states that only ingredients that could be used were barely, hops, and water. This not only preserved the quality and recipe of their beer, but it also ensured that wheat and rye were not used up for beer-making during times of famine. At the time, yeast had not yet been discovered, so yeast was not included in the law. This is one of the earliest examples of regulations on food and beverages.

To celebrate this important moment in history, the national of Palau has authorized silver commemorative proof coins. Struck from 2.5 grams of pure silver, these coins were minted in the shape of an actual beer bottle cap – a numismatic first! The mintage has been limited to only 999 coins.

ModernCoinMart is pleased to offer the Bavarian Purity Law coins in the original Mint packaging or certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in Prooflike condition with Early Releases designations.

With only 999 coins available, don’t risk waiting and missing out on this unique release. Head to a Bierzelt (beer tent), grab a bierkrug (beer stein), and bring a little taste of Oktoberfest to your collection.

Blue Planet Earth

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!
