Chestnut trees are deciduous trees found throughout the temperate regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. The species consists of eight or nine, depending on the sources cited, varieties of chestnut trees. Chestnut trees produce an edible nut that has long been associated with chastity.
The ancient Druids of Europe looked to the chestnut tree as a source of life. The chestnuts that grew in the trees and fell to the ground were not only a source of food to the Druids, but were also believed to increase fertility and one’s desire. Druid women would make talismans using the chestnut as a good fortune when trying to conceive children.
The obverse of 2021 1 oz Silver Germania Chestnut Leaf Rounds comes with a depiction the leaf from a chestnut tree. The leaf is accompanied by two chestnuts growing along with the leaf. The background field on this side of the silver round has a thick, beaded arrangement. The Druids not only saw the chestnut as a symbol of fertility, but also viewed its wood as a symbol of longevity and invigoration.
On the reverse side of the 2021 Silver Germania Chestnut Leaf Round is the Germania Mint’s double-headed eagle. A popular symbol from European heraldry still found in the modern national seals of countless countries, the double-headed eagle is representative of a nation’s respect for its past and hope for its future. The arrow-tipped bolts in the talons of the eagle are a symbol of strength, creation, and destruction.
