Nazi Coins from WW2 Germany, including Gold and silver Reichmarks. A comprehensive collection of Third Reich coins. All these coins are 100% authentic and a must for any collector of historian.
The 3rd Reich had a number of mints (coin factories). Each mint location had its own identifiable letter. It
is therefore possible to identify exactly which mint produced what coin by noting the mint mark (letter)
on the coin. Not all mints were authorised to produce coins every year. The mints were also only
authorised to produced a set number of coins with some mints allocated a greater production than
others. Some of the coins with particular mint marks are therefore scarcer than others. With the silver 2
and 5 Reichsmark coins, the mint mark is found under the date on the left side of the coin (see scans
below). On the smaller denomination Reichspfennig coins, the mint mark is found on the bottom center
of the coin.
We stock a comprehensive range of World flags, WW2 Flags and banners.
Also a selection of reproduction metal road signs, Vintage 1940s street name signs and WW2 place names
