German Porcelain Coins

German porcelain coins were made in Germany from 1921 to date. In the earliest years, they were substitutes for the real silver and gold money that disappeared from circulation after World War I. In later years, the coins did not bear a denomination, so they are considered medals or tokens. The coins below are listed in numerical order by Scheuch numbers (Karl Scheuch wrote the definitive reference book on these pieces). If you’re looking for a particular city, use your browser’s “Find” tool and be aware that cities can appear in multiple locations on this page.

Beginning in 1978, Karl Scheuch identified 2,340 different issues.  Adding the afore-mentioned varieties nearly doubles the number of collectible examples, making this both a challenging and enjoyable area of numismatics.  Fortunately for collectors today, prices remain low.  Most of the common varieties are priced from $10-$25 each.  Even the rarest varieties (those with mintages of 200 or less) can be purchased for under $100 each.

In recent years, PCGS began grading German porcelain coins and the prices for such pieces have begun to rise.  My hope is that PCGS will form Registry Sets for these coins, resulting in increased visibility.

Recommended reading (the following book is out-of-print, so you’ll have to search for a copy online):
“Muenzen aus Porzellan und Ton” by Karl Scheuch
This book is required for the proper identification of porcelain coins.  It is written in German, but even non-German speaking collectors will find it easy to use.
