10 DM coins - valuable German silver commemorative coins from 1970 - 2001!
31 years: Only in the period of this historic blink of an eye were 10 DM coins issued in the Federal Republic of Germany from 625 silver or 925 fine silver.
made from 625 silver or 925 fine silver.
When the official status of the D-Mark as a means of payment ended with the currency conversion to the Euro in 2002,
the 43 different 10-DM commemorative coins that were coined during this period experience a numismatic elevation.
Since then they have been the fascinating witnesses of an irretrievable past era.

These impressive commemorative coins keep the memory of milestones in German history alive:
They are reminiscent of anniversaries, of great events and memorable personalities.
For example, a silver 10 mark coin from 1993 shows the portrait of Robert Koch.
The famous physician and microbiologist was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1905 for his services.
The portrait of Carl Zeiss, who founded the well-known Zeiss factory in Jena, is the motif on the official 10-DM silver commemorative coin
from the year 1988. In the same year, a commemorative coin was issued in honour of the great philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. Important German artists, such as the graphic artist and sculptor Käthe Kollwitz (year of issue: 1992) or the writer Heinrich Heine (year issue: 1997), were also honoured on wonderful 10-DM commemorative coins made of silver.

A very special piece for your collection is the official 10 DM silver coin "50 Years of the Deutsche Mark" (925/1000),
Which has pictures of different DM coins as its motif. This coin was issued in 1998
and in 2002 it was selected,even by the readers of the German coin magazine, to be the most beautiful DM commemorative coin of the Federal Republic of Germany.
