Set Name2-Euro-Gedenkmünzenset 2013 Stempelglanz, Bundesländer - Baden-Württemberg

Since 2006, Germany has issued a special 2 Euro coin from a Bundesland (province) every year, depicting an important object from that region. The theme of the 2013 German 2 Euro is the state of Baden-Württemberg.

Baden-Württemberg is a German state (Land) in Southwest Germany, east of the Rhine, which forms the southern part of Germany's western border with France. With a total area of nearly 35,752 km2, it is the third-largest German state (behind Bavaria and Lower Saxony). As a federated state, Baden-Württemberg is a partly-sovereign parliamentary republic. The largest city in Baden-Württemberg is the state capital of Stuttgart, followed by Mannheim and Karlsruhe. The design of the Baden-Württemberg €2 coin features the Maulbronn Monastery, which is home to the most perfectly preserved medieval monastery complex north of the Alps.

Germany has five mints which strike circulation coins; they are distinguished by their mint marks - A for Berlin, D for Munich, F for Stuttgart, G for Karlsruhe and J for Hamburg. The set contains five coins with the same design, each struck by a different mint and with its respective mint mark. The quality is BU (Brilliant Uncirculated), which in German is called Stempelglanz.
