Fine Weight, Fineness and Mintage
The 100 Euro old town of Regensburg 2016 was produced with 999.9/1000 fine gold, and a fine weight of 1/2oz which corresponds exactly to 15.55 grams. The mintage was 150,000 pieces.
The Gold coins were produced in equal numbers (30,000 pieces) in each of the five German mints in Berlin (A), Munich (D), Stuttgart (F), Karlsruhe (G) and Hamburg (J).
The design was created by sculptor, medalist and coin designer Friedrich Brenner, from Diedorf.
The motif side shows the historical old town of Regensburg from a bird's eye view. The densely impressed view of the houses refers to more than 1,000 protected monuments in the urban area of Regensburg.
On the right part of the motif, you can see the river Danube from top to bottom. The inscription on the outer edge shows the name of the coin "UNESCO WELTERBE ALTSTADT REGENSBURG MIT STADTAMHOF"
The reverse shows the coat of arms of the Federal Republic of Germany as the main motif. On the left and right of the Federal Eagle, six stars are arranged in a semicircular shape, which represent the European Union.
Directly above the eagle, is the mint mark of the issuing Mint. Surrounding the motif is the inscription “BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND”, the year of issue 2016 and the nominal value of “100 EURO”.
In the High Middle Ages, Regensburg was a political center of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and a flourishing European trading center. Regensburg suffered little damage by allied bombing attacks during the Second World War. As a result, the collection of original Romanesque and gothic architecture has remained intact since 1945. Regensburg's old town is the only preserved medieval city in Germany.
The public buildings, civic dwellings, crafts houses and the important number of churches, monasteries and foundations provide an authentic picture of medieval urban culture that defined Southern Germany during the middle ages.
In the rich building fabric of Regensburg, there are over 1,500 monuments from many centuries throughout the city. Almost 1,000 of them are represented on the motif of the Old Town Regensburg gold coin.
On July 13, 2006, UNESCO awarded Regensburg Old Town as a World Heritage Site.
