Large silver coin, what is it


Recommended Posts

I have a coin which was given to me about 5 years ago it's says, I.H.IVIG STILLING on one side with a bold man with a huge nose on it and on the other side it says heimatliebe pulstim blut eintractacht unser herzensgut with a crown and a weather vain containing an arrow, it also has a small 1000 near the bottom with a dot below it,any ideas please,I have an iPhone but don't know how to put pictures on cheers andy

The "1000" likely suggests that it's pure silver, almost certainly made in Germany post-WWII. Lots of replica coins and medallic pieces in fine silver made and sold there.

Johann Heinrich Jung (12 September 1740– 2 April 1817) best known by his assumed name of Heinrich Stilling, was a German author. I think where you have I.H.IVIG STILLING should be I.H.IVNG STILLING with IVNG being Latin for JUNG(as the Romans had no U or J in their alphabet. The German inscription needs breaking up to ' heimat liebe puls im blut eintracht acht unser herzens gut' a google translate = On the front it says "IH Jung / Stilling," around on the back to the "Crown": [outside]: "love of country pulses in the blood / concord our kindhearted [in:] Siegerländer Folk Society".

 

 

 

Bereits 1961 erschien eine Siegerland-Medaille mit dem Bildnis Jung-Stillings nach Dannecker .

In 1961 appeared a winner's medal-country with a portrait of Jung-Stilling by Dannecker.

50th anniversary(1911-1961) medal of the Siegerländer Homeland Club, the crown & arrow is the weather vane atop the tower of the St. Nicholas, Evangelical Church in Siegen, the 40 in the auction guide above is for 40 euros.
