Why order this 2019 EUR10 France Silver Proof Fall of the Berlin Wall?

In the years following the Second World War, Berlin was a divided city, but for a time, it was a soft divide, meaning that people could freely travel from one side of it to the other. Then on August 13, 1961, which would become known as "Barbed Wire Sunday," the East Germans erected the initial barriers in what would become the Berlin Wall. The infamous wall divided the city for nearly three decades until November 9, 1989, when the East German government announced that its citizens could freely cross the barrier without fear. This 22.2 g, .900 fine silver coin marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the wall. Just 3,000 of these coins were issued. This piece remains in GEM Proof condition.

Powerful Optical Illusion Design

The coin's obverse features a unique optical illusion design. A soldier carrying a rose is depicted moving through the Bradenburg Gate, formerly of the East side, a symbol of the structure's demise. Inscriptions on this face read, "BERLIN" and "30 JAHRE MAUERFALL" (30 years of a fallen wall).

On the reverse are inscriptions that look as though they were written in graffiti, which covered the Western side of the Wall. The main inscription says, "30 ANS DE LA CHUTE DE MUR DE BERLIN 1989-2019" (30 years of the fall of the Berlin Wall). Below is an inscription of the coin's face value.
