Raw East Germany coins (1948-2001) for sale

Following World War II, Germany was split into the Bundesrepublik Deutschland (West Germany) and the Deutsche Demokratische Republik (East Germany). Both sides began issuing coins in 1948 and both are famous for their long series of commemorative coins. East German citizens did not have access to the silver versions of their commemorative coins, which were only meant for export. Thus, when Germany reunited in 1990, and East Germans were able to purchase their former country’s coins, there was surge in demand for East German coins. They remain one of the most popular areas of German numismatics for two reasons: they are affordable; and the series are all closed.
