The 50 gold pfennig coin is a piece of pattern currency produced around 1923 in the Weimar Republic. It is one of several coins made by German goldsmith Josef Wild (1872–1932).

The coin, as its denomination implies, is composed of pure gold. It has a mass of only 0.17 grams and a diameter of 6 millimeters. Like most coins, it is round in shape. The purported value is written as "50 GOLD PF" on the obverse, with the number and each word receiving its own line. Inscribed on the reverse is the number "1000", which likely signifies the coin's gold purity of 1000‰.

This coin's mintage is currently unknown. The piece is currently listed in Krause's Unusual World Coins under a section entitled "Germany, Weimar Republic".
