Germany 1 Mark (Bundeskassenschein)

Germany 1 mark (Bundeskassenschein) was the official currency of West Germany (1948-1990) and Germany (1990-2002) until the adoption of the euro in 2002.

It was first issued under Allied occupation in 1948 replacing the Reichsmark, and served as the Federal Republic of Germany’s official currency from its founding the following year until 1999.

When the 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 in early 2002.

DM coins and banknotes continued to be accepted as valid forms of payment in Germany until 28 February 2002. The Deutsche Bundesbank started issuing these 1 Deutsche Mark banknotes in 1947. They were withdrawn from circulation in 1949.

The reason why of the Mark

Produced in order to be prepared in case of a military attack from Eastern Europe.

Assuming that in case of a successful invasion the enemy would take possession of the Deutsche Mark notes and coins.

All regular DM-notes would have been declared immediately as no longer valid.

“Bundeskassenscheine” were to be circulated instead, – in order to supply the population with sufficient cash for their daily basic needs.
