About This Item

Enigma Geocoin - Polished Silver

This polished silver geocoin is very special because it has a message on it. The coin is dedicated to the Enigma M2114 cipher machine used by the German Navy in World War II

The word "Enigma" hails from the Greek and stands for riddle or mystery.

On the front of the coin are the machine settings which are necessary to decipher the encoded text. On the back of the coin is the cipher itself. The cypher can be decrypted, you just need to know how to set up the Enigma M2114. Alan Turing was the mathematician working at Bletchley Park,  Buckinghamshire in the UK (code named 'Station X') who developed the techniques which broke the Enigma Code and worked on the worlds first computer called 'Colossus'.

The inventor of the Enigma cypher machine was German electrical engineer Arthur Scherbius (1878-1929) whose name also appears on the coin.
