Information about the coin


General data

The nominal value is the stamped value of a coin. It usually consists of a number and the currency as a unit. If there is no denomination, it is usually a medal. Exceptions are coins where the weight determines the value (e.g. thalers):1 penny
The minting period indicates in which time interval (from when to when) a coin was minted:1977-1990
The type of a coin indicates the reason for its minting. Usually, coins are minted for the population as a means of payment (so-called circulation coins) or for special occasions (commemorative coins):Circulation coin
Obverse The obverse is the main face of a coin. Depending on the reason for the coinage, the nominal can be on the obverse. In the case of circulation coins, the face value is on the obverse. In the case of commemorative coins, the subject of whose thought is on the obverse:The obverse shows the nominal "1 PFENNIG", surrounded by two oak leaves (right and left), the year (below) and the abbreviation of the mint (above).
The lapel is the less important side of a coin. Usually the national coat of arms is on the lapel:On the lapel is the state coat of arms of the GDR, surrounded by the country name "GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC".
The edge of a coin can also contain a motif. Patterns or inscriptions are common:The edge is smooth.
Most of the time, coins are round. But there are also coins that are square or have a wave cut:Round
Material Each coin is made of one material. Mostly metals are used, but in times of need they have also experimented with alternative materials .:aluminum
In addition to its strength, the diameter of a coin is one of the properties that describe the spatial dimensions of the coin:Target: 17.00 mm Actual: 16.98 mm / 17.03 mm / 17.08 mm (min / avg / max)
Strength is the thickness of the coin:Target: - Actual: 1.41 mm / 1.48 mm / 1.55 mm (min / avg / max)
The weight of a coin used to be a characteristic of the value of a coin and its purchasing power. Today it is more used in circulation coins to distinguish them from other coins:Target: 0.75 g Actual: 0.70 g / 0.72 g / 0.76 g (min / avg / max)
Stamp rotation The stamp rotation describes the rotation of the lapel to the obverse and is given in degrees:Target: 0.00 ° Actual: 0.00 ° / 2.00 ° / 5.00 ° (min / avg / max)
The collection date indicates when the issuer of a coin takes the coin out of circulation. Purchasing power does not necessarily have to be lost when you move in:01.07.1990
The cancellation date indicates when the issuer of a coin deprives the coin of purchasing power:01.07.1991
The nominal value is defined as the number of the nominal converted into the base currency. The face value of a 10 pfennig piece is therefore 0.1: 0.00 EUR (canceled)
