Commemorative issue

State of Hessen

Series: Bundesländer

Obverse

A classic perspective on St. Paul’s Church in Frankfurt (the ‘Paulskirche', the seat of Germany’s first freely elected legislative body in 1849 and is regarded as the cradle of German democracy) and is 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 date and mintmark to the left and the engraver’s mark (the initials ‘HH’ — Heinz Hoyer) to the right. The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
