German patterns are far and away my favorite coins. They are rare, under-appreciated (in terms of demand and value), and they offer a variety of design types that are intriguing and attractive. The best (and only) reference for these coins is Rudolf Schaaf's "DIE PROBEN DER DEUTSCHEN MUENZEN".  Although written in German, this book is easy to use because of the many illustrations. Krause-Mishler list many patterns in the Standard Catalog of World Coins (SCWC), but lack photographs of most of the pieces.  Some KM-Pn** numbers are included below. Click on any of the images for an enlarged view of the coin, then use the back arrow to return to this page.
