1906 - Friedrich I - 2 Mark - Baden Golden Wedding
Princess Louise of Prussia and Grand Duke Frederick I married on September 20, 1856 at Neues Palais in Potsdam. Fifty years later, in 1906, a commemorative Baden 2 mark coin was minted to mark their 50th anniversary. The obverse featured Duke Frederick I in the coin's foreground, and a portrait of Duchess Louise behind him in the midground. A legend reading "FRIEDRICH UND LUISE VON BADEN • 1856 • 1906" partially encircled both effigies. Unlike most of the previous 2 mark coins, a mint mark was not present on the 1906 commemorative coin. The composition, mass, and measurements were identical to those of the previous issues, and the reverse was identical to that of the second and third Baden 2 mark coins. A total of 350,200 of these coins were minted, with 200 being struck in proof quality with a matte finish.
