I was reading the Q&A column in World Coin News and the question was “What are flussgolddukaten?”

pfalz 1764 rev I loved the answer – ducats made from gold from specific rivers in Germany. I particularly like the attached coin, as it shows miners on the bank of the river. Since this is kind of sort of what I do with Alaska placer gold, I found it fascinating.

I have scoured the internet for information, but was wondering if there is a website dedicated to these coins, or perhaps a publication.

There are still people in Germany placer mining the sands of the Rhine, and making gold tokens!

I would like to include information on these coins in the 5th edition of my book “Striking Gold in Alaska, Making Tokens from Placer Gold.” This would replace the chapter in the 4th edition on the Veld Pond.

Great question! Can anyone provide more information? -Editor
