A DM 5 piece can often be found in old piggy banks or forgotten wallets. If it is his lucky day, the finder may have a valuable specimen on his hands. In most cases, however, it is only worth between five and ten euros.
Millions of the DM 5 circulation coins were minted every year. Solely the 1958 J issue was only minted 60,000 times. The number of specimens from this issue was greatly reduced even more when the coin was withdrawn from circulation and melted down in 1975. As the price of silver had risen considerably at this time, the coin’s material value was greater than its face value.
So get the microscope out and look for the J. Have you found a rare coin?
