Why buy this 2021 1 oz Silver 5 Mark Germania Mint Mythical Forest Chestnut Leaf?

Roman armies planted chestnut trees in many parts of Europe, and millennia later, the tree is still considered to have mythical powers. Its wood was used by druids to make talisman, and many cultures have mythical recipes from chestnuts. Some also believe the trees to have special powers. That makes the chestnut leaf an appropriate inclusion in the Germania Mint’s Mythical Forest Series.

Exquisite Chestnut Leaf Design

Obverse: The medal’s obverse features a single chestnut leaf along with some of the tree’s fruit. The name of the medal, “CHESTNUT LEAF,” is inscribed in the rim frame, as are the coin’s weight and purity, “1 OZ 999.9 FINE SILVER.”

Reverse: On the reverse is a two-headed eagle, a popular symbol of Germany. The heads face in opposite directions, representing the past and future, and the bird holds lightning bolts, which symbolize the powers of creation and destruction. Inscriptions in the rim frame read, “GERMANIA,” “2021,” and the ornamental denomination “5 MARK.”
