Germany Baden 5, 10, and 20 Marks  1872 to 1900
Germany Baden 5, 10, and 20 Marks 1872 to 1900

The old German State of Baden minted 5, 10, and 20 mark coins in gold between 1872 and 1900. The beautiful coin in our picture comes from Westfalische Auktions Gesellschaft in Arnsberg, Germany, where it is on sale for 270 euros (about $370 US dollars).

Below are some typical catalog values for these coins. Remember that their value cannot go lower than the intrinsic gold value, which you compute by multiplying the gold weight in troy ounces by the current gold 'spot' value found at web site such as kitco.com. In the listing below, BV is used for the base value of the gold in the coin. The additional value comes from collector demand.

5 MARK (0.057 troy ounces gold):
worn: BV + $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: BV + $250
well preserved: BV + $400
fully uncirculated: BV + $800

10 MARK (0.115 troy ounces gold):
worn: BV + $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: BV + $150
well preserved: BV + $200
fully uncirculated: BV + $350

20 MARK (0.231 troy ounces gold):
worn: BV + $150 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: BV + $200
well preserved: BV + $250
fully uncirculated: BV + $400

There is a special coin in this series. It is the 1880G 10 mark coin (with a G mint mark). There were only 1169 of these coins minted, so their collector value goes way up. Figure a catalog value of $15000 for coins in average circulated condition.

All these values are catalog values. See our Important Terminology page about this.
