I had a great time unboxing this part of a larger collection of medieval and renaissance jetons, or accounting tokens, from Nürnberg, Germany. These were the only coins that were solely from Germany, and there was a nice mix of different tokens that spanned centuries and showed different parts of their history and evolution of the coins. There was also a great mix of weights, diameters, and depictions/art styles. It's not the sort of coin I get to look at all the time, so it was a great thing to be able to show you and bring to this channel – would you collect these??

These German Jetons are truly special, love the history. Interesting to see the Christian crosses and messages on the coin.
These are pretty neat! Thanks for sharing.
The Nurnberg Jeton with the two soldiers on both sides Barn #50. I would love to buy it from you. If it is for sale.
@treasuretown .. great video as always 😉 are you interestet in austrian kronen from the era of emperor franz josef ? 🙂
Neat. Okay maybe I may finally join Whatnot if your old German states go on the block.
Awesome purchase, Christian. 0:58 VON GOT IST WAR GLICK means “true happiness comes from God”. 6:23 the knight is St. George killing the dragon. Very neat items and not that common ! Greets from GER, U.
Thanks for showing us, with the many types found detecting over here in England, they must have been used as unofficial coinage during a shortage?
