There is writing " C. BALMBERGER'S SPIEL&RECH : PFEN. " on the coin.


Thank you very much to all.

It is a german jetton (gaming and counting token) by Carl Balmberger. A maker of medals, toy money, jettons, notgeld, and other things.


Plus Ultra is a latin phrase meaning 'further and beyond' it is on the spainish coat of arms via Charles I and is generally thought to refer to the idea of going further and farther in conquest and discovery. This is somewhat a common theme for medals as jeton makers in nurnberg as Lauer also has a very similar peice.


It was probably minted in the late 19th early 20th century. Couldnt tell you how rare it is, I have never seen it before but that means nothing, I have only seen some notgeld, medals, and a LOT of toy money from this issuer.

I dont know if its rare nor am I certain how one would find this out...I have seen other examples of these (from other minters) being used as decorations and yours is punctured and appears as if its being used in a similar way. I cant say for sure of course but I would guess its not worth a lot.
