My 1995 26.7g
.999Ag Taler coin, has the inscription in German, "Trimm-Trab ins Grüne und
Lauf. Aktionen des DSB und DLV mit der AOK die Gesundheitskasse", which
means "Trim-trot into the green and course encounter. Actions of the DSB and
DLV with the AOK of the health cash register." I have seen these sporting
