Wagner to feature on new 10 Euro Coin

Considering how much of his life he spent in poverty and certainly on the run from creditors (would The Dutchman be the same opera if not?) together with his political beliefs, one must wonder what Wagner would have thought if he had known that he would one day feature on a 10 Euro coin?

Well, whatever his thoughts, in 2013 a ten euro coin will be issued in Germany featuring his prominent profile.

At least it is silver - and not gold:  Details below:
