The cross-sections for the reactions of muonium (anti-muonium) production in the high-energy electron (positron) scattering by nuclei $e^-(e^+) + Z \to Z + M^0(\bar{M}^0) + \mu^-(\mu^+)$ are calculated in dependence on energy and polarization of the initial electron (positron) and polarization of the final $\mu^-(\mu^+)$-meson. Since this is a coherent phenomenon the cross-sections are proportional to Z2. For $Z \sim 100$, due to the factor Z2, the cross-sections are large enough to be measured at the energies available for the HERA Collider at DESY. The results are discussed in connection with a test of CPT invariance.
