Five Euro Cents 2013, Coin from Germany
CoinFive Euro Cents 2013

The Five Euro Cents coin (€0.05) has a value of one twentieth of a Euro and is composed of copper-plated steel. It is the third-lowest-value coin in the Eurozone. Like all other common circulation coins (from 1 cent to €2), the denomination is issued by the separate countries in the Eurozone and is legal tender in all of them, irrespective of which country has issued it. The coins have a common reverse (designed by Luc Luycx in 1999), and each country has its own national obverse; the German obverse was designed by Rolf Lederbogen.

The denomination was introduced in 2002, when Germany retired the German Mark currency and introduced the Euro. The five-cent coin was not redesigned in 2007 as was the case with the higher-value coins.

German Euro Cents feature an oak twig on the obverse - an image carried over from the previous five pfennigs denomination. The year and mint mark are shown at the bottom. Germany has five mints striking circulation coins, which have an arrangement whereby each mint strikes a specific proportion of the circulation coins every year.

German Five Euro Cent coins issued in 2013 have now been in circulation for eight years.

At centre, the obverse of the coin features an oak twig with two acorns. Around, the twelve stars of the European Union - symbolising the original twelve states.

Around below right in the inner circle, next to the stem of the oak twig, the date of issue: 2013.

Below left, a small letter represents the mint mark of the issuing mint.

Reverse
Germany / Five Euro Cents 2013 - reverse photo

The reverse of the coin shows the globe below right, showing Europe in relation to Africa and Asia. The design of the 1- to 5-cent coins is intended to show the European Union's (EU) place in the world, as opposed to the one- and two-euro coins showing the 15 states as one and the 10- to 50-cent coins showing separate EU states.

Behind the globe, six diagonal lines connect the twelve stars of Europe - six around below left, and six around above right.

The designer's monogram LL (for Luc Luycx) are on the right.

Above left, the numeral value: 5; on two lines above, the denomination EURO CENT.
