2022 Mythical Forest – Linden Leaf 1oz .9999 Silver Bullion Coin
People have been fascinated by trees since… ever. Trees provide us with many benefits necessary for survival, including clean air, filtered water, shade, and food. They also give us hope and courage to persevere – even in the harshest conditions. Roots buried deep in the earth, trunk above the ground, branches stretching toward the sky, are symbolic, living links between our world and the world of supernatural beings.
Strong connections between people and trees can be found in almost every religion, mythology, legends and traditions. Their physical nature and composition is often a base for stories full of magic and supernatural abilities. In many myths, a tree is a vital part of the structure of the universe. Gods and their messengers travel from world to world by climbing up or down a tree. The trees have been on earth long before people and possibly will be present long after we go… As a tribute to the power and mysticism of trees, Germania Mint is launching a series of 4 dedicated coins. Oak, Chestnut, Beech and Linden leaves will be the theme of these series.
THIRD IN THE SERIES – LINDEN LEAF
Introducing the third coin in the Mythical Forest series, a tribute to the power and mysticism of trees. The linden tree is a symbol of femininity, life and vitality. In Germanic mythology, it was associated with Freyja, the goddess of love and fertility. The linden is also a tree of lovers, under which they danced and celebrated, so it was planted in the central part of villages.
Planting a linden tree commemorated important events, such as a weddings or childbirths. Coffins were also made from its wood to ensure a peaceful sleep after death. Since the linden tree was associated with peace, it was also a good material for cradles. People took shelter under the tree during storms, believing it protected them from lightning. Touching the bark of the linden tree, on the other hand, was believed to draw diseases out of people and its health properties are widely known and valued even today.
The obverse of the coin features a linden leaf and its flower. It was the inflorescence of this long-lived tree that was used in herbalism and natural medicine. Also includes the inscriptions “LINDEN LEAF” as well as the weight and purity.
The reverse depicts the Germania Mint effigy of a double-headed eagle holding lightning bolts in either claw, symbolizing the past and the future. Also includes the inscriptions “GERMANIA”, the monetary denomination and 2022 year-date.
Each 2022 Linden Leaf 1oz silver bullion coin is provided in a protective capsule that is accompanied by certificate of authenticity. Certificate of authenticities are NOT numbered.
