To pay for massive war debts after WWI, Germany produced so much money that inflation spiraled out of control, resulting in paper money and coins of ever-increasing denominations. Now, recall that historic pre-Hitler era with a handsome 1,000,000,000,000 Mark coin struck for collectors only more than 90 years ago, in 1923, for the German region of Westphalia. Holding the world's record as the highest denomination coin ever issued, the German inscription 1 BILLION on the coin translates in English to 1 trillion! This huge, 60 mm silvered-bronze coin weighs over 2 ounces and depicts a revered Prussian leader of the 18th century - Baron Heinrich von Stein. The reverse features the rearing horse of the Westphalia coat of arms. These European coins are over 90 years old, and we have strictly limited number available. So order right away to add great historical interest to your collection!
