Nazi Germany: Reichpfennig Coin AlbumPRODUCT ID: REICHPFENNIGALB
During the Second World War, the German war machine, like the rest of the world’s combatants, was conserving strategic metals for the war effort. This led to the rationing of certain metals that were traditionally used for coins. Shortly after taking power in 1933, Hitler began to rebuild the arms manufacturing sector of the Third Reich. Prior to 1940, Germany minted the Reichspfennig coins in a bronze alloy that contained mostly copper. Later the need to conserve and redirect metals became acute as the war expanded and heated up with Germany fighting on three fronts in Western Europe, Russia, and Africa. Coins were struck in zinc to conserve the precious copper for arms. The coins that were struck in zinc were minted from 1940 until the fall of the Third Reich on May 7, 1945.
This coin is an actual 1 Reichspfennig coin struck by the Third Reich in zinc metal, and circulated throughout Germany and the occupied lands during the Second World War between 1940 and 1945. 100 Reichspfennigs equaled 1 Reichsmark. There is inscribed on the obverse of the coin the German national symbol, the eagle, perched on a wreath that is encircling a swastika along with “Deutsches Reich” and the date of issue at the bottom.
