Medal: Germany Hitler & Mussolini  1938
Medal: Germany Hitler & Mussolini 1938

As historically interesting as this medal is, it does carry a bone-chilling symbolism. On one side it shows the conjoined busts of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, faithfully rendered. The reverse displays the ultimate symbol of the united Germany and Italy during these times: the fascist Italian fasces superimposed on the national-socialist German swastika. It was designed by one F. Beyer and, as Peter correctly points out, was struck by the Prussian state mint to commemorate the meetings held between Hitler and Mussolini in Rome and Berlin over the course of 1937 and 1938.
