Germany (Prussia) 20 Mark 1913 to 1915
Yo, Bianca: Your 1913 20 mark gold piece from the old German State of Prussia would sell retail around $400 US dollars today, maybe more. The coin contains 0.23 troy ounces of gold, and at today's high gold prices that's 0.23 x $1288 = $296 in gold value alone. Use kitco.com for current gold price. The price of gold changes every day, so look it up.
The coin is so beautiful, and your specimen is in such good shape, it should draw about $100 dollars more than its straight gold content. The value over and above base gold value is called collector premium. Here are some typical collector premiums for these coins. To be valid, these collector premiums apply only to coins with no damage, such as nicks, scratches, spots, or cleanings.
worn: add $20 US dollars to the base gold price
average circulated: add $50
fully uncirculated: add $200
Prussia issued several different designs on their 20 mark gold coins. This one is the last, and it was minted only in 1913, 1914, and 1915.
DO NOT CLEAN YOUR COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE
One last word. If your coin were dated 1915, only a few of those were made and the value goes up. Way up. Figure values exceeding $1000 for coins dated 1915.
