Gorgeously Rendered Imagery
Obverse: A distinctive seven-segmented leaf of a chestnut tree dominates the obverse, with a pair of spiny burrs, which encase the fruit, depicted below. The leaf is contrasted against an intricate radial textured background, and surrounded by frame inscribed with “CHESTNUT LEAF” and “1 OZ 999.9 FINE SILVER.”
Reverse: Centered on the reverse is the heraldic emblem of the Germania Mint, which depicts a spectacular bicephalous (double-headed) eagle grasping a pair of stylized notched arrows, with a parchment-like texture in the background. The image is encircled by a double beaded border containing the inscription “GERMANIA” above, with the year of issue “2021” and “5 MARK” below. The appearance of the denomination on this medal is purely aesthetic, as the German Mark was retired in 1999 when the country joined the European Union and adopted the Euro as its official currency.
