The obverse of 2019 Silver Germania Black Ruthenium Rounds comes with the first depiction of Germania in the series.

She strides forward into the wind, her cape and hair blown back by its force, raising up her shield in defense and wielding a sword to strike down her attackers.
On the reverse side of 2019 1 oz Silver Germania Rounds is the double-headed eagle seal of the Germania Mint. The double-headed eagle is looking to the past and keeping an eye on the future. The talons of the eagle clutch arrow-tipped lightning bolts.
