The State Mints of Baden-Wuerttemberg produce Germany's commemorative and circulation coins on behalf of the Ministry of Finance. While circulation coins are distributed through the Deutsche Bundesbank, the Official German Sales Agency for Collector’s Coins is responsible for the sale of all proof commemorative coins. Commemorative coins in circulation quality can be purchased from private or public banks at face value while stocks last.

Polymer coins

Visible security

The State Mints of Baden-Wuerttemberg were leaders in the development of the polymer coin, which possesses a whole new level of security. Not only is the polymer ring a visible security feature for each user, with the addition of nano-pigments it can also serve as a covert security feature. Thus, for the first time, coins can be produced that are as difficult to forge as banknotes.
