In 1925 Goetz made patterns for Opus 352 which he called “Reichsmünzproben Germania” (Federal mint patterns “Germania”). These patterns came in values of 2,3, and 5 Marks and were manufactured in both thin and thick planchets. The designs were never adopted for coins.

I could note that I would expect nothing less than beauty from Goetz's work. Thank you for sharing these great pieces.Goetz is among my favorites, if not the favorite among medallic artists.
