Copper Coins:  German Expressionism


These coins are replicas of Karl Goetz’s bas-relief medals: a visual cacophony of images designed to provoke social commentary and ridicule their subjects. Images of skeletons, emaciated people, buzzards, caricatures of President Wilson and other influential persons and harsh subject titles confront the viewer on many of his bas-reliefs.


Goetz was not part of an organized national propaganda effort; instead he used his artistic skill to provide social commentary on the events enveloping Germany and himself. Goetz manufactured the medals and sold them to the public where they were viewed among collectors similarly to the tradition of collecting baseballs cards.


This long lost imagery is once again available to the discerning collector through these coins.


Each coin is slightly smaller in size and weight than a Constitutional Silver Dollar.


Fantasy Coin Shop provides its customers with a wide assortment of hobo coins, challenge coins, good luck coins, collectable coins, flipping coins, fantasy art coins, novelty coins, dragon coins and skeleton coins.
