LIMITED EDITION NOVEMBER 9th MUNICH PUTSCH 100th ANNIVERSARY COIN -NOW AVAILABLE 23 LEFT
2023 is the 100th Anniversary of the Munich Coup where the Party attempted to take control of the state of Bavaria with a view to extending it to all Germany. Whilst the Putsch itself was a failure it established the Party in the eyes of the world and would bring the name of the young politician Adolf Hitler to the attention of the world and would ultimately see the Party come to power in 1933.
To celebrate we have commissioned a strictly limited edition of only 100 pieces of this faithful reproduction of the famous Blood Order medal but with the date changed from 1923-1933 to 1923- 2023.
The Blood Order (German: Blutorden), officially known as the “Decoration in Memory (of the Munich putsch) of 9 November 1923” (Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 9. November 1923), was one of the most prestigious decorations in the Nazi Party (NSDAP). During March 1934, Hitler authorized the Blood Order to commemorate the 9 November 1923 coup attempt of the Nazi Party. The limited edition coin we have commissioned has a highly polished finish. The obverse bearing a depiction of an eagle grasping an oak leaf wreath. Inside the wreath is the date 9.Nov. and to the right is the inscription München 1923–2023. The reverse shows the entrance of the Feldherrnhalle in relief (where the coup ended in defeat), and directly above is the angled swastika with sun rays in the background. Along the top edge is the inscription: UND IHR HABT DOCH GESIEGT (“And after all, you triumphed”).
