‡ R.M.S. LUSITANIA: A rare original bronze German Lusitania medal, World War I, 5th May 1915, designed by Karl Goetz, the obverse portraying a sinking Lusitania loaded with munitions on one side with text reading "Keine Bann Ware" and "Der Grossdampfer Lusitania durch ein Deutsches tauchboot versenkt 5 Mai 1915," the reverse with a group of travellers buying tickets from the figure of Death manning the window of a British Cunard Line sales office while ignoring the warnings of other travellers about U-boat activity, with the text "Geschaft Uber Alles," the edge stamped with Goetz's mark. The sinking of the R.M.S. Lusitania, a civilian Cunard Company ocean liner, mostly populated by American passengers, by a German submarine off the south coast of Ireland on 5th May, 1915, resulted in a sharp decline in Germany's image in the U.S. The incident prompted Goetz to cast an unofficial commemorative medal satirizing the greed of the Cunard Company for sending a passenger liner to Britain after loading it with war material. Although never intended for wider circulation or endorsed by the German government, the discovery of the medal by the British Foreign Office resulted in a large number of facsimile copies being made by Selfridge's, to distribute with an anti-German flyer for propaganda purposes. This is the first issue of the Goetz German medal. The original German medals are now regarded as extremely rare.
