Goldmark Gold Coins were issued in 2001 to commemorate the passing of Marks and the introduction of the Euro as Germany's legal currency in 2002. These exclusive gold coins have immense appeal to investors for their .9999 purity while collectors choose them for their iconic design and their comparative rarity. Goldmark Commemorative Gold Coins bear a design that is almost identical to the legal currency 1 DM coin that was still in circulation at the time of their issue. Only 1 Million One Goldmark coins were issued in total, with 200,000 allocated to each of the country's 5 leading mints. Collectors can select from one of the five mints or buy the complete set VAT Free at coininvest.
