Online catalog for German coins


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


a couple of months ago I started creating a online catalog for German pre 1945 coinage: oldgermancoins.com It covers the German Empire, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich but also German colonies and occupied territories. There you can find information such as images, mintage, weight on many different coin types and also get a bit of a historical background.


Furthermore, as I am a collector of Prussian coins, I started implementing coins of Brandenburg/Prussia. I am working on the website for a few hours every week and try to add new coins or new information every time.


If you got any feedback or tips for improvement just let me know :)


Best regards from Berlin

Thanks. I am glad you liked the pictures. However, I do not really have a good setup for taking photos of my coins so the only thing I can do is scan them. The good thing about scanning is that you have a very consistent exposure to light. Still, my experience shows that characteristics such as nice toning or full mint luster can get lost when you scan coins.


There are also still some images missing (for example in the Prussian 1 Thaler section) because I do not have these in my collection yet. The only advantage for me is that when I am on a coin fair I can check the website on my phone to see which types are missing in my collection :)
