Made of silver, copper or because of their special embossing: some D-Marks are really valuable.

echo24.de reports which coins are important for collectors and enthusiasts.

Once spent as cash, now perhaps worth a real fortune.

Perhaps even more valuable than some rare 1 euro coins are some D-Mark coins.

The “Deutsche Mark” was introduced as a currency in the German Federal Republic in 1948 and was used as a means of payment until 1998.

The coins could be used as cash until 2001, when they could only be redeemed for the euro.

Now there are rare two-euro coins and one-euro coins in circulation.

But some 50 cent pieces that shouldn't be spent and D-Marks that are lying in the drawer can also be real treasures.

The D-Mark coins may no longer be in your wallet, but in some households they are still kept as a souvenir.

After all, the D-Mark was used as currency for over 50 years.

One D-Mark, also known as Mark or Deutsche Mark and Deutschmark in English-speaking countries, can be divided into one hundred pfennigs.

Comparable to the euro, which is divided into hundred cents.

There are the following D-Mark coins:

  • 1 D-Mark

  • 2 German marks

  • 5 German marks

  • 10 German marks

D-Mark with rarity value: These coins are valuable

Basically, all memorabilia is valuable.

For anyone who values ​​their coin collection, the coins have a personal value.

But some coins are more than just a souvenir.

Collectors, enthusiasts and coin enthusiasts spend a lot of money on some specimens.

It is important to take a close look at the coins, as the coin trading company “MDM” writes.

Not every coin is worth a lot; you should pay attention to special, commemorative and incorrect mintings.

The following D-Mark coins can be valuable

  • Special embossings

  • Commemorative coinage

  • Misprints

  • Coins containing copper or silver

Material such as copper, silver and more: This is what makes German marks valuable

Sometimes it's not the minting of the coin, but the material.

A penny coin made of pure copper is now worth more than it used to be because copper is traded more expensively as a raw material.

The price of copper is even traded on the stock exchange.

The situation is similar with the D-Mark coins.

Some 5 and 10 mark coins contain 10 grams of silver, as “MDM” writes.

The current value of these coins is also higher than the original one.

But be careful, melting the coins is not always worth it due to the material.

Sometimes it is better to examine the embossing beforehand.

There are some famous examples of valuable D-Mark coins, as “MDM” writes:

  • 1 DM coin from 1954 with mint “G”

  • 5 DM pieces from 1958 with mint “F”

  • 2 DM pieces with Max Plank and the embossing stamp F

  • 2 DM pieces with the portrait of Franz Joseph Strauss

  • 2 DM pieces with the portrait of Ludwig Erhard

  • 2 DM pieces with the portrait of Willy Brandt

  • 5 DM commemorative coins “Germanic Museum” from 1952

  • 5 DM “Schiller” commemorative coin from 1955

  • 5 DM commemorative coin “Margrave of Baden” from 1955

  • 5 DM commemorative coin “Eichendorff” from 1957

  • 5 DM commemorative coin “Fichte” from 1964

Not every D-Mark is valuable and rare: this determines the price of the coin

However, the “MDM” also points out that not all coins have a high monetary value.

There are a few things to consider.

The value of old D-Mark coins that were in circulation depends on the following points:

  • year of minting

  • Mint

  • How many coins of the same type still exist today

  • Material of the coin

  • Condition and preservation of the coin

  • Special features such as incorrect embossing

Not all German marks are valuable.

Sometimes the condition also plays a role.

In general, you should always pay attention to the coins when paying.

Not just because a coin can be valuable, but because there is more and more counterfeit money in circulation.
