Medal: Germany Hitler Propaganda  1933
Medal: Germany Hitler Propaganda 1933

Sherry sent us this picture of her German propaganda medal. The brutal dictator Adolf Hitler came to power in a few short months. There were 'free' elections, but after 10 months of masterful politicizing, only Nazi candidates were on the ballot. Part of the politics involved massive amounts of propaganda, some of which took the form of medals and medallions which were extra appealing because Germany was in very difficult economic times. If you do a CoinQuest search on 'nazi hitler' you will see several other examples of Hitler war material.

The German translates roughly to 'Our future: Adolf Hitler' and '1933: year of the German turning point'.

Nazi material is collected today and there are several web sites which specialize in this. One is Wittmann Antique Militaria in Moorestown, NJ. At the moment, Wittmann has a propaganda medal like Sherry's on sale for $250 US dollars. I suspect Sherry's could sell retail for about that amount, as long as she could find the right collector. However, there is also one on eBay, with a bid of about $50, so that gives an idea about the wide variability of prices for such pieces. Very approximately:

worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $40
well preserved: $80
fully uncirculated: $200

Sherry's medallion is in beautiful shape and has no problems such as scratches, stains, cleanings, scuffs, or nicks.

Be sure to check our Important Terminology page to understand how catalog values work.

Requester description: 1933 My Dad has passed, but I remember him telling me that when he was in the war the division had bombed this one building and many were taking whatever they could etc. My Dad was never one to take anything from anyone, but he said he reached down and put this one coin into his pocket. It's the only one I have so other than that I don't anything about it. Maybe you can tell me something. It certainly is a good looking coin, and it's the size of oh I would say a silver dollar.
