Featured Coin
Germany - Federal Republic
10 Mark
1987

Because all collecting eyes will be on Berlin, Germany, for the World's Fair of Money this week, we feature a coin that celebrates the 750th anniversary of the capital city.

The year 1237 is considered to be the founding date of Berlin. The town of C÷lln is first mentioned in 1237. It and a town called Nikolaiviertel can be traced back as forming the central part of Berlin.

The 10 mark's reverse design features a bear, the symbol for Berlin, at right holding a circular shield. The obverse displays an eagle over the denomination "10." The inscription "EINIGKEIT UND RECHT UND FREIHEIT" (Unity and Justice and Freedom) is found on the edge.

8 million of the regular coins were minted, while 350,000 proof versions were struck.
