Example of German 20 euro cent coins from 2002 and 2007 coinage. When enlarged, it can be seen that on the second coin, the second and third horses have other legs raised used on official documents. Such an eagle was on the emblems of the German Empire and the Weimar Republic.
The design was suggested by Heinz Hoyer (born 1949) and Snezhana Russewa-Hoyer. Interestingly, the original plaster models of German euro coins had a number of differences. The fact is that the stars of the European flag, engraved around the circumference of the national side on these models, were not located directly (as on the flag), but radially. In addition, the legs of the quadriga horses.
The Brandenburg Gate on the medium denomination coins on the top of the gate were incorrectly drawn. The fact is that in the sculptural composition that adorns the Brandenburg Gate, the second and third horses have their “inner” legs raised. And on the model, the horses have their “outer” legs raised. So in 1998, the first coins with errors were minted, until they discovered an incident with the so-called rotating stars. Most of the already minted coins were destroyed or subjected to mechanical deformation. A small part of the batch has been preserved, and the collector value of these coins today can reach 500 euros or more. However, in 2007, horses with "wrong" legs saw the light again. True, only on coins of 10 and 20 euro cents. 10 euro cents were issued in a limited edition exclusively as part of numismatic sets, and twenty was minted in large numbers and came into circulation. Unlike other Eurozone countries, Germany has five state mints located in different cities. They issue regular minted coins, 2 euro commemorative coins, as well as collector's coins made of precious metals.

Each mint has its own designation:
