Most Bundes Republik coins dated 1950 and later are worth face value, although, if they are uncirculated, certain pfennig coins may be priced a bit higher. The most valuable 1950 Bundes Republik coin is the 50 pfennig with the inscription "Bank Deutscher Länder," valued at around 800 Euro or $1036.76.
After World War II, the German States, also known as Deatscher Länder, minted its own coins until the Bundes Republik took over. For this reason, many early issues are unique and valuable. Around 1950, when the country began to settle down, the mint was more widely distributed and therefore less valuable.
