2016 500 Years of Bavarian Purity Law Silver Coin
The Bavarian purity law was enacted by Duke Wilhelm IV of Bavaria on 23rd April 1516. It not only regulates the ingredients that are permissible for beer brewing, but also the measuring units and seasonal prices.
Duke Wilhelm IV would certainly marvel at these minted and coloured crown caps made of fine silver. He would certainly be proud that this exceptional coin marks the 500th anniversary of the purity law.
