Danzig - The Lost City
By Bardas

Owner Comments:
The Free City of Danzig (German: Freie Stadt Danzig; Polish: Wolne Miasto Gdańsk) was a semi-autonomous city-state that existed between 1920 and 1939.
-Settlements that were primarily inhabited by Germans
-The Free City's population of 410,000 was 98% German, 1% Polish and 1% other
----------------------------------------
In July 1923 it was announced that a new and independent currency (the gulden) was being established with the approval of the League of Nations finance committee to replace the German mark. The gulden was introduced at a value of 25 gulden = 1 pound sterling. The Gulden was the currency of the Free City of Danzig between 1923 and 1939. It was divided into 100 Pfennige.

-A first series of coins was issued in 1923, followed by a second in 1932. Coins were issued in denominations of 1, 2, 5 and 10 pfennige and ​1⁄2, 1, 2, 5, 10 and 25 gulden.

- The 25-gulden coins were minted in gold. Produced in very small numbers in 1923 (1,000) and 1930 (4,000), the latter date's issue was only released as a few presentation pieces. As part of the 1923 series are 200 proof coins and, while available to collectors, are very expensive.
- The 1930 issue was essentially unobtainable until a large number appeared in the 1990s, apparently released from a Russian treasury where they had been stored since their capture at the end of World War II.
