interesting facts:
This coin is the first one from the series promoting federal states of Germany. The medievial city gate Holstentor in Lubeck was chosen the most characteristic for the Schleswig-Holstein state. The gate was constructed around 1478 and was protecting the city from the West. It was registered as the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
