Why buy this 1 oz Silver Proof 2019 Germania Mint Oak Leaf Medal?
Take a numismatic step back in time to when ancient Germanic peoples worshiped the oak. They considered its fruit, acorns, responsible for fertility, while considering the oak itself home to ghosts and gods. Now, Germania Mint pays tribute to that history with this Silver Proof Oak Leaf. The medal was struck from .9999 fine silver and is part of a mintage of just 1,000 pieces. It comes in its original packaging from Germania Mint and will arrive in GEM Proof condition.
Featuring an Exquisite Oak Leaf Design
The medal's obverse bears a simple design of a single oak leaf and an acorn. Two inscriptions are included in the rim frame. Theh first, "OAK LEAF," notes the name of the medal. The second notes the piece's weight and purity, "1 OZ 999.9 FINE SILVER."
On the reverse is a double-headed eagle, a symbol of empire that dates back to ancient Rome. The image was associated with Janus. Janus was believed to be the guardian of gates, the god of origins, and the patron of allied arrangements. The heads face left and right, representing the past and the future. The bird clutches lightning bolts, which represent the power of creation and destruction. "GERMANIA" is inscribed on the top of the rim frame, while "2019" is in the lower left and "5 MARK" is in the lower right. The face value harks back to Germany's former currency and is just ornamental, as this piece is not legal tender.
