2012 G German Euro Cent

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

Despite all the talk that the smaller Euro coins are not being used I managed to find in my change yesterday a one euro cent. Not just a small cent but from 2012. A brand new euro coin from Germany is not what expected after these stormy times in the city.


This is a tiny coin and the lack of sunshine in the morning forced me to use fluorescent kitchen light. The color is off because of the lighting and since winter is here getting good light will be tough.

From what I heard about Europe they do not use small coins like the 1 or 2 euro cent coins. At least Germany is still making them every year by the hundreds of millions. Although this is from the Karlsruhe mint, thus the G before the date, which is always the lowest minted. Some Euro countries round up and stopped using these coins. These coins are still issued to stop the rampant overcharging Europeans were predicted to do if these small coins did not exist.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Euro Cent / Germany
Year: 2012-G
Mintage: 72,940,000 (estimated)
Metal: Copper Plated Steel: 94.35% Steel 5.65% Copper
Value: $0.05 in F

Do you have a Euro coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Yes.

But in my case I own the name coinedformoney.com and Blogger allows you to automatically reroute.

Yes, it is just a few dollars a year, from godaddy or yahoo or any place.
