January Special Offer

German 20 Marks Wilhelm II


German Wihelm II

For the first time since January 2013, and only the second time in seven years, we've secured a large enough tranche of pre-1933 German 20 Mark gold coins to feature them in our signature special offer program. Minted in significantly lower numbers than European counterparts like British Sovereigns and Dutch Guilders to start with, numerous coins were also lost forever during the two world wars, making German 20 Mark one of the most elusive European coins in the market. Moreover, they are thought to be 'sticky coins', meaning that once they find their way into private ownership, they rarely make their way back out. As such, after we saw a very small batch of 90 coins generate significant interest back in May of last year, we've made it a sort of mission to accumulate German coins whenever the chance arose. So now, after seven months of tapping literally every resource possible, often securing only 20-30 coins at a time, we've finally accumulated enough coins to make an impact. So without further ado, we present our January special offer - and we're adding in some very attractive incentives to make this one of our most intriguing special offers to date. Put simply, we're starting the new year off with a bang!

It is worth an added comment that these particular groups of coins are both exceptional for their grade level, with the BU coins being some the nicest German Marks we've ever seen. Don't believe us? Here's an image of the exact BU coins being offered here.

Wihelm Coin Pile

Through the course of this accumulation, every once in a while, a sort of treasure in the form of a Wilhelm I (Wilhelm II's grandfather) 20 Mark gold coin (pictured below) would turn up. After the dust finally settled, we had secured a tidy little position of 30 of these nearly impossible to find pieces in XF/AU condition. In our experience, the Wilhelm I coins seem to surface at a rate of about 20:1 when compared to the Wilhelm II coins, adding some context to the coin's relative rarity. Because we don't have enough to offer them separately, and we didn't ourselves have to pay any more to acquire them, we will allow their purchase according the following terms*, in an effort to give as many clients as possible a chance tosecure their share these remarkably scarce coins:

Wihelm II Koenig *For each position of 15 coins purchased in the Wilhelm II variety coins (either XF/AU or BU), a client will have theoption to secure one Wilhelm I gold coin at the same quantity rate as the XF/AU Wilhelm II coins.

Raffle: And finally, to add even further to the intrigue, we will be entering all buyers of 10 coins or more into a raffle to win a truly rare coin that floored us when it turned up in our accumulation. Pictured here, this coin also features the bust of Wilhelm II, but was minted in the German state ofWurttenburg in the year 1900. Only 500,000 coins were minted that year, but current surviving populations are thought to be substantially fewer. This choice AU coin (photo below is of actual prize coin) is in an exceptional state of preservation and is a true treasure for the lucky winner. Raffle numbers will be given at the time of the order, and number entries will be distributed as follows:

10 coins - 1 ticket
25 coins - 2 tickets
50 coins - 3 tickets
100 coins - 4 tickets
Wihelm II Koenig

So while volume buyers will increase their chances of winning, no one buyer will have greater than four entries. This gives everyone, from the 10 coin buyer on up, a realistic chance of winning. In fact, the last time we did a raffle with a special, it was a minimum buyer that took the prize.

Good luck to all!


Historical Commentary:
As the second son of Freidrich Willem III, Wilhelm I had no expectations to ascend to the throne and hence received little education. He served in the German army from 1814 onward, fought against Napoleon I of France, and was known to be an excellent soldier. In 1861, he became King of Prussia, and after Prussia defeated France in the Franco-German War (1870-71), he declared himself the first German emperor (January 18, 1871). His grandson, Wilhelm II ascended the throne in June of 1888. As an interesting historical note, Wilhelm frequently made serious personal blunders that strained Germany's diplomatic relations with other countries. The most well Wilhelm IIknown instance of this may be the "Daily Telegraph Affair" of 1908. When Wilhelm was offered an interview with the newspaper, he saw it as an opportunity to promote his views and ideas on Anglo-German friendship. Instead, due to his emotional volatility and subsequent outbursts during the course of the interview, Wilhelm ended up further alienating not only the British people, but also the French, Russians, and Japanese all in one fell swoop. He effectively implied that the Germans cared nothing for the British; that the French and Russians had attempted to instigate Germany to intervene in the Second Boer War (a war between the British and republics within South Africa, resulting in their addition to the British Empire); and that the German naval buildup during that time period was targeted against the Japanese, not Britain. *Oops* Wilhelm's power steadily declined through the course of World War I, ultimately leading to his abdication in 1918.
