Germany Fulda Notgeld 5 and 10 Pfennig  1918 and 1919
Germany Fulda Notgeld 5 and 10 Pfennig 1918 and 1919

Emergency money, or notgeld in Germany, took the place of normal government issues during coin shortages. Times leading up to and during World War I saw the creation of much notgeld, and this piece is one from the city of Fulda in the German State of Hessen.

Very few of these particular coins survive. Made of zinc, they do not last long. The ones you see today are generally in horrible condition. If you can find the coin in good shape, it is worth substantially more than the barely readable coins in most collections. Here are some typical values

worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $8
well preserved: $80

The dramatic rise in value for well preserved specimens tells the story of Fulda notgeld.

Coin: 15005 , Genre: Central Europe North South
