1934 5 Reichsmark Potsdam Church

Recommended Posts

Saw this coin and needed it, wasn't cheap for this type of coin (don't bother asking a gentleman never tells ;) ) but the condition of it is what swayed me as nearly all I see are well used.

This version of the 5 Reichsmark coin was released to commemorate the 1 year anniversary of the Third Reich and was only made in 1934 & 1935, the Potsdam Garrison church was shown on the reverse while the Imperial style eagle with swastikas was on the front.

This one was manufactured at the Stuttgart mint denoted by the letter F under the church

The rarer coins have a date either side of the church.

The Potsdam Garrison church was built by the Prussian royal family, it was made to give the officers & soldiers a place of worship who were stationed guarding the royal family.

It became the place where Adolf Hitler wanted to celebrate dissolving parliament and setting up a dictatorship, it survived an allied bomb hit during the war and ended up in the East German zone, work began on restoring it but the communists had it destroyed, there are now plans and funds to have it rebuilt.

Most of the 20th July Hitler assassination  plot members and their family's met there and worshipped there.






Here it is along side the other two coins I have, mintage of these coins below was the following,


5 Reichsmark 1934 F   4,844,000

5 Reichsmark 1939 D   1,216,000   

2 Reichsmark 1937 D   6,190,000


The mintmark letters are below

A = Berlin
B = Wien (Vienna)
D = München (Munich)
E = Muldenhütten (Dresden)
F = Stuttgart
G = Karlsruhe
J = Hamburg


5 Reichsmark coins were made in .900 silver, 

2 Reichsmark coins were made in .625 silver

I don't buy much because I have other hobbies and I am very patient, I could break into my savings now and get a large bar but I would sooner save up for it with dead money, I went that balls deep into buying and selling militaria that you could taste the saltiness of my sac, I made a lot of money from it, I also lost a lot in the end thanks to the EU, so I am a lot more cautious now and happy to just see what comes my way.

I like the look of these coins and have just bought a 1936 J and 1938 E 5 Reichsmark coins. The '38 is coming from a seller in Dresden and looks in good nick. I might start slowly in building up a collection of these.
