Beginning of 2016 there was a new coin series released in Germany. It was the “Planet earth” 5EUR series which consists of a plastic ring incorporated into a coin. This coin comes in five different color sets of its blue plastic ring. After the release in April 2016 the coins were sold out within a very short period of time although there was a mintage limit of 250k for polished coins and 1.5 Mio for the standard coins.
