Germany 10 Pfennig 1873 to 1916 | pfennig germany 10 bird crown eagle coat hawk nickel falcon shield ribbon deutiches dutches pfennige pffnig deutschem deustch deuches pfenig Your 1876 10 pfennig coin from the old German Empire catalogs for about $20 US dollars in almost uncirculated condition. The coin in my picture is in average circulated condition, so the catalog value goes down to about $10. Fully uncirculated 10 pfennigs catalog at $20 or more. The dates before 1889 catalog above $50 when in uncirculated condition. Please check the meaning of 'catalog' using our Important Terminology link at the upper left.

Remember: Do not clean your coin. Cleaning ruins value.

Look for an H mint mark on your coin. If it is there, the value goes up substantially.

Just about all of these 10 pfennig coins from the German Empire catalog in the $2 to $5 region for worn coins. There are exceptions. The series runs from 1873 to 1916. In 1889 the design of the reverse changes a little and in 1915 the composition changes from copper-nickel to iron and zinc (see this link for information on the iron and zinc coins.

Below are the better dates for the copper-nickel coins, worth about $10 to $20 catalog value for coins in worn condition (more if in well-preserved condition). See if you have any of these:
