From the Augusta Collection of European Gold Coins

The so-called "Lottery Ducat" was struck on the occasion of the founding of the Mannheim lottery in 1767. The inscription on the back indicates that one should not only rely on fortune's favour, but also that a fair amount of diligence is required to be successful.
