Germany, 10 Pfennig 1921 Zinc

Even before the outbreak of World War One, Germany’s leaders had made plans to modify the country’s monetary system to meet the needs of a wartime economy. By 1915 production of copper coins had stopped and those made of copper nickel were replaced with zinc or iron as other metals were diverted to the war effort. One such coin is this 10 Pfennig from 1921. They were first issued in 1917 and were still in use until 1922 long after the end of the war. Despite being over 100 years old, we can offer this historical coin in very fine condition.
