Welcome to oldgermancoins.com

Last update: 11.03.2018

With oldgermancoins.com, I want to provide a free online resource for collectors and numismatists who are interested in German coins minted before 1945. My own collection mainly consists of German States coins from Brandenburg and Prussia, which is why this website will primarily feature coins from that region. However, I will also try to provide a useful overview on German Empire coins, coins from the German colonies, circulating issues from the Weimar Republic and coins from the Third Reich.

This website may not exactly serve as a catalog, because I do not list any particular values. However, I hope that some information regarding mintage and literature will be helpful to some collectors out there. Otherwise, I hope that you'll enjoy having a look at what I enjoy. This website will be extended steadily, so please make sure to drop by every now and then.

If you'd like to provide images for the website or have any questions on German coins in general feel free to get in touch using the contact form.

There is also a way for you to contribute to this website and to add crucial information. Many coins on this website are still missing pictures so if you would like see one of your coins on this site,  just let me know. Besides that, you can also send in high-definition scans or photographs of your old German coins to be shown in the coin gallery.
