One Mark 1998 (mint sets only), Coin from Germany - detailed information

One Mark 1998 (mint sets only), Coin from Germany (demonetised 2002)
CoinOne Mark 1998 (mint sets only)

The One Mark coin, abbreviated 1 DM and known in English as 1 German Mark, was the main circulating denomination of the Deutsche Mark (German mark), which was the official currency of West Germany from 1948 until 1990 and later of unified Germany from 1990 until 2002.

In 1999, the Deutsche Mark was replaced by the Euro; its coins and banknotes remained in circulation, defined in terms of euros, until the introduction of euro notes and coins on 1 January 2002. In preparation for the event, Germany stopped issuing new German Mark coins. Some were struck for the mint sets of the year (in uncirculated and in proof grades), but none were issued into circulation.

All coins of this type were demonetised only four years later, and were not acceptable as payment after 28 February 2002.
