Germany Prussia 2 and 3 Mark with Napoleon  1913
Germany Prussia 2 and 3 Mark with Napoleon 1913

Nice coin, Inge. Since it is mounted on a chain, your specimen carries no value to coin collectors and is worth its weight in silver. These coins were issued in both two (zwei) and three (drei) mark denominations. Here are some typical catalog values:

2 (ZWEI) MARK (0.321 troy ounces silver)
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $50

3 (DREI) MARK (0.482 troy ounces silver)
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $30
fully uncirculated: $50

This coin comes from Prussia, a state in the German Empire. Apparently the man on horseback, and perhaps the snake, is Napoleon. 1913 is the 100th anniversary of his defeat by the United Kingdom, Russia, Austria, and Prussia.
