Columbia is not well-known to modern Americans, but for more than 200 years she was the female personification of the United States. Liberty featured on early American coins and, following the construction of the Statue of Liberty in the 1880s, Liberty took on an outsized role in American culture. By the 1920s, Columbia had been replaced as a female symbol of the United States.
Nevertheless, Columbia was once a major part of the American social fabric. Her image was first used in Europe to represent the Americas in general. She was named Columbia after Christopher Columbus, the first European explorer to visit vast stretches of Central and South America. Eventually, Columbia became associated more closely with British colonies and North America, becoming the personification of the original 13 colonies that broke away to form the United States.
The obverse side of 2019 10 oz Silver Germania Mint The Allegories Columbia Germania Rounds includes a depiction of the two Allegories walking toward the future hand-in-hand. Columbia carries the American flag with her, while Germania has the German eagle flag.
On the reverse face of 2019 Silver Germania Mint The Allegories Columbia Germania Rounds is the fictionalized heraldic shield of the Germania Mint. It is a quartered shield with a crown on top and the popular double-headed eagle seal of the Germania Mint in one of the quadrants.
