These "Aureus Magnus" (the great Gold) were first issued in 1955 by German medallist Werner Graul. The series was minted with the traditional Ducat specifications.
Graul's idea was to create a Gold backed world currency with these ducats and therefore he founded the Institute for International Gold Currency and submitted the "10 Theses of Zurich" to the ministers of finance in several states. Even though his idea was not accepted, the Aureus Magnus were distributed via several banks at some point.
