Germany Euro Coins

The German government backed a profound shift in political power within the EU, with general support for some form of European federation. It also backed eastward enlargement. However, there was much wariness about the loss of the solid, strong Deutsche Mark in favour of the euro. For most Germans, the fear of inflation - and the corresponding love for the stable D-mark they enjoyed for years - remained deep-seated. The country had gone through several currency reforms and a period of hyperinflation within living memory, and many would had rather sticked with the reliable D-mark, which for them symbolised the country's post-war success. Please take a look at The German Mint.

German euro coins have three separate designs for the three series of coins. The 1, 2 and 5 cent coins were designed by Professor Rolf Lederbogen, the design for the 10, 20 and 50 cent coins is by the hand of Reinhart Heinsdorff and the 1 and 2 euro coins were done by Heinz Hoyer and Sneschana Russewa-Hoyer. Featured in all designs are the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint.
