    I have quite a few german coins and was wondering if they have much value? They are 1874 to 1940. 20210412_092811.jpg 20210412_092921.jpg 20210412_144726.jpg 20210412_144903.jpg

    In my experience they usually aren’t worth much. Try Numista as there may be some valuable varieties

    Unfortunately, not much from what I can make out here. Most of these coins are from the Berlin Mint (A Mintmark) or are common post-war issues. In my opinion, a conservative estimate of value would be about 5 for $1.

    Edit: The 1916-D 2 pfennig does have a relatively low mintage of 915,000 coins. Regardless, I'd probably give it a small premium compared to the rest of the coins. However, you'd be hard-pressed selling these coins for more than a quarter each.

    I see these at shows in 15-25 cent bins. Base metal German coins were made in the hundreds of millions (probably several billion if added up) and rarely hold a large amount of value.

    If that lot was mine to sell I'd list it at $2.

    Not much value, all are common date / mint combinations, and they are all what German collectors would consider sub-par condition. They will be worth 0.15-$1 each, with the 1916D 2pf being at the top end of that range.
