German states Baden 1 Pfennig ~ Ruler: Friedrich I FEATURING front: Crowned Baden Crest centre Lettering: BADEN SCHEIDE MÜNZE Coat of arms of Baden 2 griffins rampant holding a striped crowned shield The Griffin is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature The coat of arms of Baden comes from the personal arms of the Margraves and Grand Dukes of Baden, the traditional rulers of the region. Following the revolution and abolition of the Grand Duchy in 1918, the arms and griffin supporters were usurped from the Grand Dukes by the new republic to represent the people and country. Baden is today part of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg in Germany, where one can still see the arms of Baden represented in the coat of arms of Baden-Württemberg, as a badge atop modern federal state's arms. • quantity 1 • demonetized {no longer in circulation} Copper coin • diameter: 21.7 mm • weight: 4 g ***Choose from drop down menu *** {2 mm thick cords} 22" dark brown cotton necklace 24" brass ball chain 2-1/2" brass snake keychain with snap end {see last photo} ***If you need a different length black cotton necklace message me***
