Adolph Moritz Wilhelm Reinhard Kullrich[2], better known simply as Reinhard Kullrich, was a German engraver who worked at the Berlin Mint during the 20th century. With assistance from other coin designers, he engraved several coins used by the Weimar Republic.[1]


4 Reichspfennige 1932 A J315

A 4 Reichspfennig coin from 1932.

Reinhard Kullrich was born in 1869 in Berlin, the younger son of Berlin Mint engraver Friedrich Wilhelm Kullrich and his wife, Marianne Anna Maria Schultz.[2] Kullrich eventually became an engraver at the Berlin Mint after his father's death. He designed the beardless portrait of Grand Duke Adolphus Frederick V of Mecklenburg-Strelitz on the obverse of a 3 mark coin of the grand duchy issued in 1913.[4] In collaboration with artist Louis Oppenheim, Kullrich designed the 50 pfennig coin used in the Weimar Republic from 1919 to 1922. Joseph Wackerle and Kullrich worked together to engrave the German 3 mark coin of 1922, the 1 and 2 Rentenpfennig coins first used in 1923, the 1 mark coin issued from 1924 to 1925, the 1 Reichspfennig coin issued from 1924 to 1936, a commemorative 3 Reichsmark coin of 1928 that marked the 1000th anniversary of the founding of Dinkelsbühl[5], and the 4 Reichspfennig coin of 1932. He also designed the 1923 2 and 1930 25[5] gulden coins of the Free City of Danzig in collaboration with Professor Otto Fischer. Kullrich died sometime around 1947.[1]
