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 2015 German 2 Euro is the state of Hessen (Hesse).
Hesse (German: Hessen), is a state in Germany. Its capital city is Wiesbaden, and the largest urban area is Frankfurt. With an area of 21,000 square kilometres it ranks seventhy among the sixteen German states. Frankfurt Rhine-Main, Germany's second-largest metropolitan area (after Rhine-Ruhr), is mainly located in Hesse. The coin design features Paulskirche (Saint Paul's Church) in Frankfurt am Main.
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 proof, which in German is called Spiegelglanz.
