I have 5 of these gold rounds. I have researched high and low and cannot find anything at all. #9734;#9734;According to the 2x2 holder these rounds are in, they are from Austria & They are Commemorative Proofs. #9734;#9734;There is no face value on any of the rounds, so that's why I call them medals. I also call them commemorative, because they all feature the German word 'WAIDMANNSHEIL'. I googled this word and it translates to 'good hunting". I looked into that word further, and I found the following: waidmannsheil- a hunting term originating in Germany to congratulate a hunter on his success in the field. #9734;#9734;Each round features a female (with nice breasts!!), holding a bow for hunting in one hand, while The other hand is holding onto a doe's neck, both graciously prancing together. (I assume this female plans on hunting this deer with her bow and arrow, and will make delicious jerky with the organic meat). #9734;#9734;Each round weighs 10.4grams #9734;#9734;Each round is composed of 900 gold. There is an 'A' that is circled, then states 900 after the circled 'A'. #9734;#9734;Underneath 'A' 900, there is a name of H. DILLER #9734;#9734;On the other side (not certain what is reverse or obverse) appears the initials HD.

PLEASE HELP ME DETERMINE ANY INFORMATION AT ALL REGARDING THESE UNIQUE GOLD ROUNDS. My boss wanted me to list these on eBay, and I told him to wait until I get some information. It's nearly impossible for me to put a value on these. Any info, is good info. Thank you for reading my post. Have a great Thursday everyone. From cold PORTLAND OREGON.

The medals are the work of the German Helmut Diller (1911-1984) , who signed his work also with HD .
The A 900 indicates it is gold ( Aureus) 900/1000 . The obverse is the animal side , the lady the reverse .The value is the goldvalue or maybe a little bit more ,I think, as you can offer 5 pieces.albert
