    This question has been nominated for closure twice. I resist closing a question that has an answer, and as Jeff says, if you are not practiced at reading Fraktur, then the answer may not be obvious. – Mark C. Wallace Nov 5 '17 at 15:51

As it says on the coin, the portrait is the German poet, philosopher, physician, historian, and playwright Friedrich Schiller.

Schiller's portrait was replaced by that of Paul von Hindenburg from 1935-1939.
