Germany Hesse Darmstadt Heller  1821 to 1855
Germany Hesse Darmstadt Heller 1821 to 1855

Before 1870 the German Empire was not really an empire at all. It was a collection of separate states. One of those states, Hesse Darmstadt, issued 1 heller coins from 1824 to 1865. These coins are not particularly valuable when they are worn or average circulated, but well preserved and uncirculated specimens are quite collectible, as listed below:

DATES BEFORE 1837:
worn: $50 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $200
well preserved: $400
fully uncirculated: $700

DATES 1837 TO 1847:
worn: $6
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $30
fully uncirculated: $75
coins dated 1845 are slightly less common when fully uncirculated condition where they catalog at $90

DATES 1848 TO 1855:
worn: $5
average circulated: $11
well preserved: $37
fully uncirculated: $75

Damaged coins are worth much less. Refer to our 'Important Terminology' page on the top left in order to properly understand what the term 'catalog value' means.

Requester description: 1840 It is small, about the size of a U.S. dime. One one side it has an 'I' with two small flowers on each side, with the word 'HELLER' below it and the date '1840' below that. On the other side is a crown with a shield below it. The shield has a picture of a sword carrying lion on it. To the left of the shield are the letters 'G.H.' and to the right are the letters 'K.M.'
