1873-1889 - Deutsches Reich - 10 Pfennig

The Pfennig is an old German coin or note, which existed from the 9th century until the introduction of the euro in 2002.

The Mark gold currency, introduced in 1873 as currency of the newly founded German Reich, was divided as 1 Mark = 100 Pfennig. This partition was retained through all German currencies until 2001.

Following German unification in 1871, the country adopted the German gold mark as its currency in 1873. The name was taken from the mark banco. Coins denominated in gold marks were first issued in 1873, and gradually replaced the old coins. The mark banco was converted into the new gold mark at par. The Bank of Hamburg was incorporated as the Hamburg subsidiary into the newly founded Reichsbank (established 1876), issuing banknotes denominated in gold marks.[2]
