    Germany produced the most gold/silver coinage of any Country by a wide margin. Almost 1/5 of Friedbergs book on Gold coinage is devoted to Germany. Most German coins where issued by the HRE/ Church/ City/ or Foreign Occupation forces (French/ Swedish) Coins ranged from the massive AV 100 Dukaten (350g.) to tiny 1/32 Dukat .06g! Also Germany was first to strike milled coinage in 1400s/ it took England another 200+ years to accomplish machine made coins. There is no person alive with the necessary funds to complete a German coll. in gold/ not even Vladmir Putin or Bezos. It would cost more then the entire USA debt 30 Trillion$. I have a teeny weeny AV collection from Germany (200+ coins):(
