Germany 200 and 500 Marks 1923
'Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit' (unity and justice and freedom) were hardly in the offing for 1923 Germany. Difficult economic times was one of the tools Hitler and others used to turn national sentiment away from democracy and toward the Nazi flavor of socialism. The fact that Germany issued 200 and 500 mark coins in aluminum is a strong indication of runaway inflation. By 1933 the monetary system had been re-vamped and the Nazis were issuing 1 reichsmark coins in nickel, a step up over aluminum in metallic composition.
