Germany Prussia 2 and 5 Marks 200 Years  1901
Germany Prussia 2 and 5 Marks 200 Years 1901

As you suspect, Geroge, you have a 5 Mark coin from the old German State of Prussia. It celebrates 200 years of Prussian history from Friedrich I to Wilhelm II. There are also 2 mark coins with the same pattern.

2 (ZWEI) MARK (0.322 troy ounces silver)
worn; BV + $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: BV + $20
well preserved: BV + $25
fully uncirculated: BV + $45

5 (FUNF) MARK (0.804 troy ounces silver)
worn; BV + $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: BV + $40
well preserved: BV + $80
fully uncirculated: BV + $120

In the above listings, BV is the base value of the silver in the coin. To find BV, multiply the silver content in troy ounces by the current price of silver as shown on kitco.com. For instance, if silver is selling for $20 US dollars per ounce, BV for a 2 mark is 0.322 x 20 = $6.44.

Be sure you understand what 'catalog' means (see Terminology page).

Requester description: 1901 Friedrich I 1701 Wilhelm II 1901 (on one side) Deutches Reich 1901 Funf Mark (on other side) Thanks for your earlier info. However, I wanted to resubmit to clarify. The date of the coin is 1901. However on one side there are two dates 1701 and 1901. That side also has two people on it. I assume the people are Friedrich and Wilhelm. The other side has a bird (eagle?) with a crown over its head. Thanks for your help. I like your site.
