Bavaria is in south Germany. From 1180 AD to 1918 the Duchy of Bavaria was ruled by the descendants of the Count of Wittelsbach.
Your coin is a Bavaria 3 marks. The 1911D issue commemorates the 90th Birthday of Prince Regent Luitpold. The mintage is 640,000 pieces. Value range: $10 – $100 depending on grade (condition). A proof (presentation piece with mirror fields and higher relief than the regular issue) also exists.
