The first coin from the Allegories series features a personifications of two historical lands: Germania and Britannia. On earlier coins Germania has preserved a laurel wreath with a shield. This time her sword rests at peace in a scabbard attached to her waist and she reaches out her hand in a sensitive gesture to Britannia. So far Lady Britannia was presented as a beautiful and thoughtful woman. On the new coin she is surrounded by her characteristic attributes – a Roman helmet with a plume, a shield and a trident, which refers to the former maritime power of her land. We can search for symbolsism of these two Amazons in the historical context as well as in current events.
