The most impressive feature of the steam ship Deutschland III was its speed. On the return trip from New York to Hamburg, its high speed even caused it to lose its rudder.
The Deutschland III was a steam ship that could reach incredible speeds. In 1902, it traveled at such high speeds that its rudder actually fell off on its return trip from New York.

The Deutschland III completed the transatlantic route Europe-New York in merely five and a half days, thereby earning its shipping company HAPAG the Blue Band Riband of the Atlantic for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic. Over 100 years later this remains an impressive accomplishment, although far from the comfort offered by a modern cruise liner.

Its high speed and the consequently strong vibrations earned the double-screw express steamer the nickname 'cocktail shaker'. This rare gold coin depicts the Deutschland III at stormy sea and full speed on its record-winning journey to New York.
