the coins are another matter. you see, Porsche has been giving out these coins along with their calendars since 1962, which is the coin we see pictured above and below. this was the very first coin and has become a very sought after piece by Porsche collectors and historians alike. they’re so-called “Münze Wien,” which literally means “Vienna Coin” because of where they are minted, but like anything else that involves antiquities, you have to become a Divvy to be able to spot first, second, and third reissues.
they’re kinda like a Cracker Jack prize…each year, the coin sports a different Porsche model, figure, or some other historical icon making them each very unique. so, if you, like your author, live for Porsche history, these coins aren’t to be missed when they surface.
along with the very first 1962 issue, we’ve showcased all of the coins from the 60’s. stay tuned, in the net installment, we’ll bring you the coins from the 1970s and put them in our market segment as they surface on eBay or Craigslist.
