1936 English language Vienna Mint calendar.
« on: September 12, 2019, 02:03:17 PM »
Good looking 1936 calendar from Vienna Mint and unusual in that it's made for the UK market.It's also a Leap Year medal which corresponds exactly to 2020, even down to the date of Easter, April 12.

Silver40 mm, 19.2 gr.

I believe the first year the Austrian Mint made Kalendermedaillen was 1933 and they continue to make them today.
All of the first 1933-1944 calendar medals are harder to find than later issues. The mint also made custom pieces for customers
such as Porsche and the university of Innsbruck and many others. They were often made in Silver and Bronze and then Zinc in the war years.
Some recent years were available silver plated or gold plated as well as proof. I think they are all 40mm. I forget now but seems like there are 7 different old Gods
depicted over and over.
Nice series!

PS

Also some years and especially recently the mint made Gold calendar medals.

I have 43 Austrian calendar medals. Love the series.

No Gold  :(

Thanks Dale, I didn't spot your ealier reply.
IIRC, the customised calendars bore the trade name Degussa.

Yes Degussa was a customer however there were many more.
I have
6 University of Innsbruck different dates
1 St Christopeher 1962
2 Degussa 1942-1943
1 Bernard Altman 1949
2 Porsche both 1963
1 Sparcasse 1942
1 1965 Deutsche Wissenschft
and 23 regular issues if I have not miscounted.
They also did a 40mm Del Ka shoe store which I have but it wasn't a calendar

I have seen a dozen other custom ones but don't have them
