The Deutsche Mark, or Deutschmark, was the currency of Germany from 1948 until 2002, when it was replaced by the Euro. The mark was first struck as a silver piece in Germany in 1873, as a standard denomination worth 100 pfennigs. The word ‘mark’ derives from the Scandinavian word ‘mearc’, meaning ‘sign’. This relates to the physical ‘marks’ on precious metal bars.
