Germany: "Curt Eisner" Minister President satire medal by Karl Goetz (ND), circa. 1918-1919; bronze-copper cast; size: 57mm, weight: 59.2g.

Obverse: depicts bespectacled Eisner on lion trying to pull bag over its head, with legend beside him "CURT EISNER *I*" and around edge, "UND MINISTER PRÄSIDENT BIN ICH" ("And a Minister President am I") with "8.NOV.1918" in exergue.

Reverse: depicts image of angle of Death wearing feathered Bavarian hat and scales of Justice protruding through broken doors bearing "1180" and "Verfassung [Constitution] 1818" which lie on top fallen images of the deposed Monarchy, with legend around edge, "UMSTURZ IN BAYERN" ("Revolution in Bavaria").

Relatively thin planchet, plain rimmed without Goetz's name stamped - but his initials appear on each of the two columns on the reverse. In EF-AU: relatively poor detail on reverse due to casting; Kirschner Nr. 43, Kienast-214.
