Schön-322, KM-336 Country Germany - Federal Republic (Germany) Year 2015 Value 2 Euro Metal Bi-Metallic Nickel-brass clad Nickel center in Copper-nickel ring Weight 8.50 g Diameter 25.75 mm Commemorative issue State of Hessen Obverse The design depicts a classic perspective on St. Paul’s Church in Frankfurt (the ‘Paulskirche’ was the seat of Germany’s first freely elected legislative body in 1849 and is regarded as the cradle of German democracy) and is therefore the perspective possessing the greatest recognition value. The design incisively brings out the tension between the dominant tower and the elliptical structure of the church. The slightly exaggerated flight of steps has an inviting quality while simultaneously offering support to the subjacent inscription ‘HESSEN’ (the Federal State of Hessen in which St. Paul’s Church is situated).The inner part also features the year ‘2015’ and the mint mark of the respective mint (‘A’, ‘D’, ‘F’, ‘G’ or ‘J’) at the left side as well as the issuing country’s indication ‘D’ and the engraver’s mark (the initials ‘HH’ — Heinz Hoyer) at the right side. The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag. Lettering: 2015 D A HH HESSEN Translation: 2015 D A HH HESSEN Engraver: Heinz Hoyer Reverse A map, next to the facial value, shows the European continent without borders. Lettering: 2 EURO LL Engraver: Luc Luycx Luc Luycx is the designer of the common side of the euro coins.
