Germany has continued its ‘Wonderful World of Insects’ coin series by issuing a €5 coin dedicated to the seven-point ladybug.
This new series, launched last year, sees digital printing being used for the first time in embossing these colour print coins, with the colour applied to the relief. A total of nine coins (one in 2022, four in 2023 and four in 2024) will be issued, illustrating this essential part of the fauna in Germany, Europe and the world.
