Why buy this 1914-1919 1/2 Mark & 1 Mark Germany 2-Piece Silver Set

Prussian King William I accepted the title of Emperor of Germany in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles on Jan. 18, 1871. This was a humiliation to the French, who were still fighting the Franco-Prussian War. Although the empire lasted less than half a century, it changed the course of European history by unifying 26 German states. These coins were struck during the World War I Era.

  • This set was assembled to mark the 150th anniversary of the German Empire.
  • The empire was replaced by a republic at the end of World War I.
  • Both coins were struck from .900 fine silver.
  • The 1/2 Mark weighs 2.77 g, while the 1 Mark weighs 5.55 g.
  • The 1/2 Mark was struck sometime from 1905-1919, while the 1 Mark coin was struck in 1914 or 1915.
  • The German government ordered many silver coins to be melted to support the country's efforts in World War I.
  • The coins in this set will be in either Almost Uncirculated or Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Powerful Imperial Eagle Design

The two coins in this set share very similar designs. Obverse: The face value of each coin, "1/2 MARK" or "1 MARK," is at the center of the obverse. It is encircled by an open wreath. "DEUTSCHES REICH" is inscribed at the top along the rim, while the coin's respective date is at the bottom.

Reverse: On the reverse is an imperial eagle, which spreads its wings and has a crown on its head. The bird also has a shield on its breast. The eagle is encircled by a wreath on the 1/2 Mark but not on the 1 Mark.

Beautifully Preserved AU to BU

The coins in this set will be in Almost Uncirculated to Brilliant Uncirculated condition. AU coins show slight wear, while BU coins lack any. Given that many of these coins were melted to support Germany's war effort, these coins are in remarkable condition.
