Medal: Germany (City of Mainz) Gold  1975
Medal: Germany (City of Mainz) Gold 1975

'Mainzer Dom' refers to an impressive cathedral -- one of many impressive buildings -- in the City of Mainz, Germany. This gold medal was issued in 1975 to celebrate the cathedral as well as Saint Willigis (940AD to 1011AD) who was Archbishop of Mainz between 975 and 1011.

The medal contains 5.9 grams of gold, and its value comes from the precious metal. There are 31.1 grams in one troy ounce, so the medal has 5.9/31.1 = 0.19 troy ounces. At today's gold price (which changes every day, look it up at kitco.com) of $1320 US dollars per troy ounce, the medal is worth 0.19 x 1320 = $250. A collector might pay slightly more than this for a nice-looking medal.
