Welcome to oldgermancoins.com

Last update: 30.11.2017

Oldgermancoins.com aims to be one of the best resources on the web for informationen on German coins from the period between 1800 and 1945.

I am steadily building an online-catalog that covers German coinage from 1871 to 1945, coinage of colonies and other territories that have been occupied by Germany and pre-1871 coins of several German States, such as Prussia. On the respective pages you can find information such as mintage numbers, literature references, detailed images and descriptions of the coins.

Oldgermancoins.com is supposed to be an useful tool to help you manage your collection, to identifiy coins and to evaluate them.

Please note that this website was created just recently and thereby is far away from being complete. It also takes quite some time to gather up all the information I want to provide. However, steady progress is made and the catalog is growing and growing.
However, if you do not find what you are looking for at first glance, just visit this website again later. You might as well use the contact-form to tell, which coins you think are missing.
