An extraordinary collection of "The Allegories" coins consists of two parts. On each of them, the main character is a female personification of Germany. In the first part of the collection, "Germania Britannia," she meets with Britain, which is also represented in the image of a powerful woman. The creators of the coin emphasized the love of peoples to their lands through the image of "Mother of the Nation," through which poets and writers describe their homeland. Since ancient times, peoples have been humanizing their homelands by giving them human characteristics. Usually, the role of personifications was played by women, as they are most suitable for the position of defenders, patrons, and careful monarchs of their peoples. Women's images are also chosen for their beauty. Every nation believes that its land is the most beautiful, so it is easier to convey this idea through a female image.
Germania Mint produces coins from "The Allegories" series, and they are always delighted by collectors. Firstly, thanks to their detailed and quality design. Secondly, because of their historical meaning. Viewing the images of two women is fascinating because they conceal a certain sense in each element of the picture. The developing hair and flying dresses speak of freedom-loving, oak wreath about reliability, stability, and unity. The arms and shields of women also notice of the politics of these historic lands. For example, by the trident in the hands of Britain, we can understand the maritime past of this country. Equally impressive is the reverse side of the coin, where the symbolic meaning is also encrypted.
