A great gift!
I went for a coffee today with the family at the place where my friend @giotists works.
A few days ago I gave him a gift, I guess he decided to return the favor and he gave me this sexy silver coin along with the cold frappe I ordered:
What a nice shiny beauty!
This is a commemorative piece minted in 1987 for the 750 years of Berlin, the capital of Germany in case you live in a cave and you haven't heard of it before!
What I really like about this coin is the engravings! Just look at that sexy eagle and that sexy bear. But why these two animals?
Well, the bear is the mascot of the city, occuring on seals, coins, flags and all kinds of shit of Berlin since the 12th century! And the eagle is the animal of Germany's coat of arms and other stuff.
Anyways back to the coin! On the front it reads in German
BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND 1987
10 DEUTSCHE MARK
The Federal Republic of Germany 1987 10 Deutsche Mark
On the other
1237 1987 BERLIN 750 JAHRE
1237 1987 Berlin 750 Years
The edge is also engraved with EINIGKEIT UND RECHT UND FREIHEIT for Unity, Justice, and Freedom
The coin weights a respectable 15.5 g of 0.625 silver, which translates to roughly 9.7 of silver. In today's spot price (0.64 $ per gram) that's about 6.2$. Nice!
As always, here are some more quick specs from numista:
Overall, a really beautiful piece and a great addition for my silver stack. What a nice gift 🥰
