Description

GERMANIA BEASTS: FAFNIR 2020 Bullion

Legends are an inseparable part of every Culture. Civilizations around the world have outdone themselves with the ingenuity and variety of mythical stories. With time, as tales are passed down from generation to generation, they become an inseparable part of that cultures historical record. Among the captivating descriptions of wars and tragic love stories these legends often overflow with tales of mythical monsters. The rich history of Ancient Germanian culture is full of some of the oldest and most terrifying creatures in medieval northern and western Europe. Most of the beasts from the Germanic bestiary were harmful and dangerous, few regarded as useful and protective allies, all were used in stories to teach obedience, respect and submissiveness.

The coin design has been precisely executed by Natalia Danysz. The idea, rare in the numismatic world, seamlessly joins two separate faces to compose an integral whole.  Fafnir’s visualization creates an infinity sign, where the two parts of its body placed on each side of the coin, create the image of a complete dragon. To see this effect, the coin needs to be either flipped or two coins need to be placed with the obverse above the reverse.

An integral part each of the Germania Mint’s coin series is the symbol of two-headed eagle. On this Fafnir series the eagle is located on the reverse, encircled by dragon’s tail.

Reverse face

The reverse depicts Germania’s two headed eagle encircled by Fafnir’s tail.

Obverse face
