This extremely rare 50 Pfennig coin from 1949 is a sample for the GDR coin. It shows on one side the inscription "Germany 50 Pfennig 1949 A". Particularly remarkable is the fact that the zero here is smaller than that of the 50 Pfennig circulation coin, which was issued in 1950. On the other side of the coin the emerging state of workers and peasants GDR shows a plow in front of an industrial plant with smoking chimneys (Jäger, 1504P1).
Only very few pieces of this extremely rare coin were produced. The coin has a weight of 3.1687 grams, a horizontal diameter of 20.08 mm and a vertical diameter of 20.05 mm. Brilliant / extremely fine condition, i.e. it is an uncirculated coin without visible defects. An expert report by Guy M. Y. Ph. Franquinet is included.
