2003-F German 20 Euro Cent

Do you have a Euro from Germany and want to know its value? Leave a comment

The most common German 20 Euro Cent from 2003-2011 is?

That is right this 2003-F and it is no surprise that I have one. When collecting from change or buying coin lots expect to get the most common of any type of coin. It is a numbers game and the larger the mintage the better chance to find any particular coin.


This edge notched coin is so shiny and golden that is was difficult to capture on this partially cloudy day. The Brandenburg Gate really stands out, as well as the map on the front.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 20 Euro Cent / Germany
Year: 2003-F
Mintage: 82,400,000
Metal: Brass / Nordic Gold: Copper 89%, Aluminum 5%, Zinc 5%, and Tin 1%
Value: $0.50 in XF

Are they more different mint marks on Euros than there are on U.S. coins?

Yes, all German euros have either A,D,F,G, and J.

Not sure of these two but they are listed as having mint marks.
Greece 2002 had one
Vatican 2005 had one

So does this mean that each Euro coin is minted in the country depicted upon it? (e.g. Greek coins minted in Greece, Belgian coins minted in Belgium?)

Not always.

Example: Greece 2002 had certain mint marks...
E – Madrid
F – Pessac, France
S – Vantaa (Suomi), Finland

Also the first year was made in such great numbers that often they were made in different countries.
