Pre and post-WWI, emergency currencies called notgeld (literally, "necessity money") were issued by municipalities of the German Empire. The sheer variety of notgeld produced during this era — the materials, denominations and subjects of which ran the gamut — no doubt adds to its collectible appeal. One such sought after example is this 100 year old jumbo-sized gold-colored 10,000 mark issued by the Prussian province of Westphalia. Struck in gilt bronze, the 44.5 millimeter coin features a bust of Freiherr vom Stein, who in the early 19th century introduced the Prussian Reforms that would eventually lead to the unification of Germany. The reverse displays the horse of the Weimar Republic. About Uncirculated to Brilliant Uncirculated quality.
