2019 german silver coins series
The 20 euro silver coins cover three themes linked directly or indirectly to the Weimar Republic and that will be 100 years old in 2019:
– 100-year Constitution of Weimar (August 2019)
– 100 years of female suffrage (January 2019)
– 100 years of Bauhaus (March 2019)
In 1919, the post-war period and the end of the monarchy encouraged many political, economic and cultural developments in Germany. Thus was born the first German democratic constitution, the “Weimar Reichsverfassung”, in which women’s right to vote was anchored for the first time.
At the time of the new beginning, the Bauhaus in Weimar brought together the new socio-political mentality, industrial production methods linked to crafts and artistic approaches in an innovative international academic teaching and a new architectural style.
Two others coins liked with german culture will be issued:
– 250th anniversary of Alexander von Humboldt (September 2019)
– Series “Grimm’s Fairy Tale”: The Courageous Little Tailor (May 2019).
