Germany 50 Pfennig  1919 to 1922
Germany 50 Pfennig 1919 to 1922

Hi Bobby -- Your aluminum coin catalogs for less than one US dollar. These coins were minted by Germany as the Weimar Republic after the end of the first World War.

The majority of the dates and mint marks of the series are worth $1 or $2 US dollars at most even in well preserved condition. In fully uncirculated condition, they might fetch $5 US dollars from a keen collector.

However some of these coins were minted in much lower numbers; for 50 pfennig coins in aluminum dated 1919 with a mint mark of D, E, G or J, multiply the above values by two.

The king of the series is the 1919F coin - in fully uncirculated condition, these sell retail for upwards of $50 US dollars. Coins will exceptional eye appeal will be worth even more.

Bobby - the valid mint marks for your 1921 date are A, D, E, F, G, and J. I do not see anything in the catalogs that indicate an F/G mint mark is possible. Of course this does not mean you don't have one. Could it be an E mint mark? Use a magnifier. If you think you have an F/G piece, please start an e-mail exchange with CoinQuest and send us a picture via e-mail.

Coin: 755 , Genre: Central Europe North South

Yes I have also this coin F over G but year 1920. Could it be rare or it is nothing special? Regards - LaZooRo
It's difficult to know, LZR. Bobby never contacted us and so we never saw a picture of his coin. The catalogs do not show a mint mark as you describe. If you would like to send us pictures, please start an e-mail exchange using the Contact button at the top of the home page. Photographing coins, especially their mint marks, is difficult. You might want to contact a photo-minded friend for help. - CoinQuest (Paul)

I have got 2 of them 1921 A is it rare? Please give me an answer it would be helpful! :) - Redzo
1921A is a common date and not very valuable: a few US dollars if in uncirculated condition. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Finally I added this to my coin collection - long wanted, but the hands did not reach :). In Ukraine, the price of this coin is 0,5-1 USD.

I have a 50 Pfennig coin very clearly dated 1921G noted as XF condition; what might it be worth? - GLG
Hey GLG -- your coin falls into the 'majority' noted in the second paragraph and has a catalog value of $1 (U.S. dollar) in XF condition. - CoinQuest (Todd)
