This is a genuine piece of history, the famous silver 5 Reichsmark Coin, minted, issued and used during the Third Reich. The coin features a silver content of .900 (90% pure silver) and measures 29mm in diameter, with a weight of 11.88 grams. These coins began their life after the election of the Nazi Party to Federal Office in Germany in 1933, along with the 2 Reichsmark silver coin (see my other nazi coins) and continued to be used in Germany and the Occupied Territories right up to and including 1945, the final year of the 1000 year Reich.
The coin features:
* Issue date
* Mint mark
* German Eagle & swastika
* Head of the famous German President and former Field Marshall, Paul Von Hindenburg.

The aging Hindenburg died in 1934, and was honored on these Nazi coins, minted between the years 1936 and 1939.These are not copies, replicas, or reproductions. These are genuine silver coins minted in Nazi Germany. They are in Very Good condition with various mint marks and will be available for only a limited time.
