AA1517 Very Nice Post WWII German Bullion 999 22 ct Gold Clad Coin Medal Erwin Rommel Desert Fox 1oz







AA 1517

This medal is 40 mm wide.

Johannes Erwin Eugen Rommel (1891 – 1944), popularly known as the Desert Fox, was a senior German Army officer during World War II.

Rommel was a highly decorated officer in World War I and was awarded the Pour le Mérite for his actions on the Italian Front. In WWII, he distinguished himself as the commander of the 7th Panzer Division during the 1940 invasion of France. His leadership of German and Italian forces in the North African Campaign established his reputation as one of the most able tank commanders of the war, and earned him the nickname der Wüstenfuchs, "the Desert Fox". He later commanded the German forces opposing the Allied cross-channel invasion of Normandy in June 1944.

Rommel supported the Nazi seizure of power and Adolf Hitler, although his attitude towards Nazi ideology and level of knowledge of the regime's crimes remain a matter of debate among scholars. In 1944, Rommel was implicated in the 20 July plot to assassinate Hitler. Due to Rommel's status as a national hero, Hitler desired to eliminate him quietly. Hitler forced Rommel to kill himself, in return for assurances that Rommel's family would not be persecuted following his death. Rommel was given a state funeral, and it was announced that he had succumbed to his injuries from the strafing of his staff car in Normandy.


An excellent example of a numismatic medal coin this will work well as a space filler in any coin collection.
