Germany struck over 25 percent of total coinage/ thus no one is rich enough to complete it. Please pile on with your German coins

I will start ball rolling with this one from my birthplace.

AV Goldgulden ND (1411)

Jülich Mint

Reinald IV 1402-23 Herzog zu Jülich-Kleves-Berg

I would assume that that 25% figure applies only to non-ancient coins, given how many different types (and total coins) were issued by all the different ancient states over a period of more than 1,000 years.

Here are my only two German gold coins, both Prussian issues from the German Empire post-1870 . I have a few silver coins from Prussia, Saxony, and Saxe-Altenberg that I can post another time.

Friedrich III, 1888:

Yes/ since there were so many coin issueing states. Köln  (my Moms hometown) for instance was an Erzbistum (Archbishopric) thus struck coinage for the Church/ However "City coinage" was also produced under the Holy Roman Emperor. Here is my

Braunschweig-Lünenburg/ Herzogtum

Oh, don't get me started... much of my collection consists of medieval and early modern German coins.

To keep this post small enough, I'll just show some small change from the region I grew up in:
