Germany 1936-1939 "Hindenburg" Silver 2 Reichsmark. This Nazi era silver coin played on the popularity of World War I Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg. Hindenburg had also served as President of Germany and it was only after his death that Adolf Hitler was able to come to power. Minting of these coins was suspended during World War II, as silver was needed elsewhere. And most were later melted as emblems of the infamous Nazi regime. Very Fine quality.
German 1936-1939 "Hindenburg" Silver 5 Reichsmark. Hitler's most famous silver coin was introduced in the year of the Berlin Olympics, when Nazi Germany's power began to be perceived as a serious threat to world peace. The stolid portrait was Hitler's "tribute" to the late President Paul von Hindenburg, who had far outpolled the Nazi runner-up in the German general election of 1932. The obverse presented the first large swastika on Nazi coins. Fine to Very Fine quality.
