AUSTRIA, tokens & medals
    Austria is right next to Germany and they speak German they have a somewhat different exonumismatic profile - a lot fewer tokens, jetons, medals.  Might this be due to Austria's long history of centralized government?  Surely there are some psychological aspects at play.
