2008 - Hamburg
The national side of the commemorative coin shows the Michaeliskirche (Church of St. Michael) from the south in an engagingly detailed and elegant form. The ideal proportions of the baroque church are depicted like an architect's blueprint with total accuracy and are set in taut counterpoint against the round of the mint design. The new national side has been designed by Erich Ott of Munich.
The €2 commemorative coin has the same technical parameters as the regular issue €2 coin. They were minted in equal quantities in both mint condition and proof-like finish by all five German mints.
