Bracteates - their meaning and embossing technique
The name brakteate goes back to the Latin 'bractea'. Translated this means 'thin metal sheet'. Such coins were minted only on one side, on a soft base. This resulted in a one-sided, slight curvature.
Bracteates shone with a variety of motifs. Mostly, however, gods and magic runes were the most popular motifs.
