Police in Germany have confiscated 5,000 ecstasy tablets imprinted with the face of Donald Trump.

On Saturday night, officers in Osnabrück looked inside a van during a random traffic stop and uncovered a stash of 5,000 ecstasy pills which were pressed into the shape of the president's head.

The haul of Jerry Springers carries a reported street value of around €39,000 or approximately AUD$58,000, and the offending duo was subsequently arrested and hauled before a local judge.

A 51-year-old man and his 17-year-old son were in possession of the drugs. They were from the Netherlands, according to the German magazine Der Spiegel.

The suspects said they had travelled to the Netherlands because they were interested in buying a auto, but had returned empty-handed to Germany in the direction of Hanover.

The pair had travelled from the Netherlands, which is where the drugs are reportedly from, to Lower Saxony. One such Trump-banded product recently uncovered, however, is neither part of the president's many official offerings nor would it make him grimace with pride. British tabloids reported last month that the pills, reportedly made in both pink and orange, were flooding the United Kingdom illegal drugs market.
