Germany issued this .999 fine silver 25-euro commemorative coin to honor the 25th Anniversary of German Reunification. The coin was designed by German artist Bernd Wendhut, from the Rhine valley wine country town Bernkastel-Kues.
Obverse: A stylized German federal eagle. The top and bottom text are centered and separated by two partitions of six stars. At the top, the legend reads BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND (Federal Republic of Germany), while the inscriptions at the bottom read 2015 and 25 to represent the face value of 25 euros. The number 25 is larger than the surrounding text and is centered at the bottom of the coin. The mint of production is represented by one of the following marks: “A” (Berlin), “D” (Munich), “F” (Stuttgart ), “G” (Karlsruhe) or “J” (Hamburg).
Reverse: A crowd of 11 people stand with their arms held high in front of the Brandenburg Gate symbolizing the fall of the Berlin Wall. A large symbol of the euro frames the action, the crossbar of the “E” is held aloft by two people, symbolizing the evening of November 9, 1989, when East and West Germans met for the first time in generations at the wall, all standing in solidarity while the hands of the people tore down the divisive barrier. To the left, wrapping around the rim is the inscription 25 JAHRE DEUTSCHE EINHEIT. On the right is the inscription, repeated three times WIR SIND EIN FOLK (We are one people).
Rim: The smooth-edged coin features an embossed inscription that reads EINIGKEIT UND RECHTS UND FREIHEIT (Unity and Justice and Freedom).
