Germany 1 Reichsmark  1933 to 1939
Germany 1 Reichsmark 1933 to 1939

You are right, Paula. The 1 reichsmarks are made of nickel and take a back seat to the spiffier, silver, 2 and 5 reichmarks. There are a few decent dates in the 1 reichsmark series. Most dates follow this pattern of value:

worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $20

Some dates and mint marks are worth quite a bit less than the 'nominal' values above. These are:


which are worth less than $10 in fully uncirculated condition.

Other dates and mint marks are worth quite a bit more than the 'nominal' values above. These are:

1933G: $90
1936E, F, G, J: $150
1938G, J: $150
1939B: $250
1939E, F, J: $120
1939G: $350

where the values after the dates and mint marks are for fully uncirculated coins.

Requester description: 1937 I am going thru my deceased father's coins and found a 1937 1 reichsmark. It's in really good quality. I has a eable on one side and has a 'E' mint marking under the eagle. I can't find much online about the 1 reichsmark, only the 2 and the 5 and I haven't been able to determine why. Was the 1 reichsmark not in general circulation? It has an eagle on the back and inscriptions DEUTFCHES REICH GEMEINNURZ VUR EIGENNUTZ
