Germany/Prussia > Breslau: Jewish Wilhelm School (Wilhelmschule) of Breslau, 1791; silver, size: 28.5mm, weight: 6.7g: one of the only Jewish school medals minted at that time, it commemorates the foundation of the Jewish Wilhelmschule of Breslau in Prussia.

Although the school was supported by the Prussian-Jewish aristocrat Lippmann Meyer, local insecurity over anti-Semitism led the community to pay homage instead (German legend: "Vom Grafen Hoym Veredelt") to the Christian minister, Count Karl von Hoym, of the Silesian government who made the existence of the school possible and who gave the Jews a new constitution in 1790 (JM-70 and 137). In EF-AU with good luster; Heyden-1846.
