Thuringia Geocoin


Recommended Posts

Now it's time to have an own coin for the most beautiful federal state of Germany - Thuringia.


That is how the coin looks like:



The front is in 3D.

Some parts are sand blasted.

I hope you like the design as much as I do.


You can order the Thuringia Geocoin is now at www.geocoinshop.de


The pre-order starts today.

Because all coins of the regions of Germany series are related to very small areas for example a town or a admistrativ district. Thuringia is a federal state and it is worth to have a special coin for its own.

Second reason is, that I don't like the backside of the regions coin very much. Only a seperate coin gave me the oportunity to have another backside design.

In the middle of the frontside you can see the room, where the reformer Martin Luther translated the Bible in 1521. He needs only 10 weeks for it - amazing.


As you can see, Thuringia has a long and fascinating history.

Now I have added a space between "E" and "010°", like between "N" and "50°".

I think it looks better in this way. :)


What do you think about the coin and its design?

Any ideas or suggestions? :)


I like it...mostly because I think I had dinner in a castle across the river from there! I'm pretty sure, at least. Man...that was back in 1998! Wow!


Oh! The coin! I like it; looks good.
