CoinGold Half Gram (2021) Graf von Stauffenberg

The Democratic Republic of the Congo normally uses banknotes for circulation, and does not issue coins in the Congolese Franc currency. However, the country has authorised some foreign mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction.

Most of them are in internationally popular sizes, including the half gram of gold mini-coin format - such as this coin.

This coin commemorates Claus von Stauffenberg (15 November 1907 - 21 July 1944) - a German army officer who is best known for his failed attempt on 20 July 1944 to assassinate Adolf Hitler at the Wolf's Lair.

Despite initial support for the Nazi Party's nationalist aspects, and a tentative opposition to democracy, Stauffenberg joined the covert resistance movement within the Wehrmacht as the war continued, opposing the criminal character of the dictatorship. Alongside Major General Henning von Tresckow and General Hans Oster, Stauffenberg was a central figure in the conspiracy against Hitler within the Wehrmacht. Shortly following the foiled Operation Valkyrie plot, he was executed by firing squad.

Reverse
Congo, Democratic Republic of the / Gold Half Gram (2021) Graf von Stauffenberg - reverse photo

The reverse design shows a portrait of Claus von Stauffenberg in uniform, facing quarter left. Below the portrait, the date of the failed attempt to kill Hitler: 20 JULI 1944 (20 July 1944).

Around the rim, the inscription OBERST SHENK GRAF V. STAUFFENBERG *1907 +1944. The inscription is in German. "Oberst" means Colonel, "Shenk" - "cup-bearer", was historically an officer of high rank in royal courts whose duty was to pour and serve the drinks at the royal table (on account of the constant fear of poisoning, a person must have been regarded as thoroughly trustworthy to hold the position); and "Graf" is the aristocratic title of Count.

On a second row inside this, the inscription DEUTSCHER WIDERSTAND (German Resistance).
