Beautiful large and heavy commemorative coin. Edge stamped #1812 (of 2500). In 1926, the Weimar Republic of Germany isssued a 5 Mark Silver Coin to Commemorate the World Tour of their famous aircraft the Graf Zeppelin. In 1986, the German government mint in Hamburg issued a 5 ounce Pure Silver Proof Quality version of the original 5 RMK to Commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the original coin and the original flight. This large silver coin is a beautiful piece with the original obverse faithfully reproduced and with the famous prancing Westphalian Horse of Germany on the reverse. The total mintage was only 2,500 pieces, so they are quite scarce and difficult to obtain today. Excellent
