Polymer coins

Visible security

The State Mints of Baden-Wuerttemberg were leaders in the development of the polymer coin, which possesses a whole new level of security. Not only is the polymer ring a visible security feature for each user, with the addition of nano-pigments it can also serve as a covert security feature. Thus, for the first time, coins can be produced that are as difficult to forge as banknotes.

Inventors from Baden-Wuerttemberg

Andreas Stihl – Father of the Chainsaw

Andreas Stihl is considered the “Father of the Chainsaw”. His “STIHL tree felling machine” alleviated the hard work carried out by lumberjacks, even though he was not the inventor of the chainsaw. Using Stihl’s machine lumberjacks no longer needed to bring felled tree trunks into a saw mill but were able to work on site with the chainsaw instead. The gearless petrol-powered STIHL Contra chainsaw was a breakthrough – it was lighter and more manageable than any competing products.
Stihl continues to be an important and valued employer in Waiblingen today. The Stihl calendar is iconic in workshops all over the world.
