MYTHICAL FOREST: OAK LEAF – 2019 5 Mark 1oz silver BU

People have been fascinated by trees since… ever. Trees provide us with many benefits necessary for survival, including clean air, filtered water, shade, and food. They also give us hope and courage to persevere – even in the harshest conditions. Roots buried deep in the earth, trunk above the ground, branches stretching toward the sky, are symbolic, living links between our world and the world of supernatural beings. Strong connections between people and trees can be found in almost every religion, mythology, legends and traditions. Their physical nature and composition is often a base for stories full of magic and supernatural abilities. In many myths, a tree is a vital part of the structure of the universe. Gods and their messengers travel from world to world by climbing up or down the tree. The trees have been on earth long before people and possibly will be present long after we go… As a tribute to power and mysticism of trees Germania are launching a series of 4 dedicated coins. Oak, Chestnut, Beech and Linden leafs will be the theme of these series.

Reverse face

The design of the coin is devoted to the theme of an oak tree. The Germanic peoples treated this plant with greatest reverence, they worshiped the oak and believed that ghosts and gods lived inside it. It was also believed, that its fruits – acorns, were responsible for fertility, which was one of the magical abilities of an oak tree. On the obverse we can find an image of a single beautiful oak leaf together with an acorn.

Obverse face

Effigy of Germania Mint. The two-headed eagle is a symbol appearing in Roman mythology associated with Janus – the god of all origins, guardian of doors, gates, passages and bridges, the patron of allied agreements and arrangements. Heads facing the opposite symbolize the past and the future. The lightning bolts held in the claws of an eagle are a divine attribute, symbolizing strength and the power of creation and destruction. With the Oak Leaf we present a refreshed image of the effigy of Germania Mint.
