Incredibly Detailed Allegorical Imagery
Obverse: Lady Germania and Lady Galia are depicted on the obverse, standing upon the ruins of the Roman Empire, with their hands joined and raised in triumph. Inscribed “ALLEGORIES” and “1 OZ 999.9 FINE SILVER.”
Reverse: The reverse features the coat of arms of the Germania Mint, a jeweled crown with a shield below bearing heraldic symbols such as a double-headed eagle and a wild boar, along with patterns that are emblematic of wisdom, truth, and freedom. Inscriptions include “GERMANIA,” “2023,” and “5 MARK.” Since the German Mark was officially decommissioned in 1999 when Germany adopted the Euro as its national currency, the appearance of the denomination on the medal is for decorative purposes only.
