The word Bethel means House of God and you can find it in the Bible and as names of cities and regions in Israel, Alaska, other US states, Germany, and (no doubt) elsewhere. These coins come from the Bethel region of Bielefeld, a city in Germany, and are notgeld or emergency money issued by private means when government currency was in short supply before World War I.
