Porcelain Coins and Medals of Germany
by Mark Wieclaw and Jeff Amelse
Germany’s Meissen porcelain production has a history more than 300 years old. Medal production began about 1820, and went into regular production on Meissen’s bicentennial in 1910. When hyper inflation hit Germany after World War I, Meissen’s factories began to turn out porcelain coins. This subject is unfamiliar to many collectors. Those who attend this meeting should be prepared to see numismatic pieces rarely seen at meetings or coin shows. In addition to numismatic history, this program offers beauty, art history and superb craftsmanship. Bring your spouse and interested guests. Everyone, including guests, will receive a porcelain coin or medal compliments of Harlan J. Berk, Ltd.
