Old Berlin currency, due to it being outdated and defunct, has no value as money in modern-day society. However, it may be seen as valuable to a collector with an interest in currency, history or just Germany itself. To enquire about the currency’s value to a collector, you can visit a dealer shop or an antique shop and see if you can gather interest in what you have to sell. Be sure to have a good look around before you sell your collector’s item though; some places will pay more than others, and you just need to find somewhere with a particular enthusiasm for what you are selling. Alternatively, if you wish to get a more specialised opinion on your currency, advertise it on Internet forums that are specifically themed towards German history.

The old Berlin money, given that Berlin is the capital of Germany, was the German mark. This currency ran from 1979 until 2002 all over the country, until it was replaced by the Euro immediately after it was issued as a valid form of currency. However, if you still possess cash of the German mark variety and live in Germany, every Bundesbank has stated a guarantee that all German marks can be cashed in and changed into Euros indefinitely, so you still may have a chance to gain from your possessions.

If you don’t find any offers that suit you, you can always keep them as an antique. Antiques, as long as they are kept in decent condition, will always increase in value over time, so it’s always worth popping them in the loft for a few decades and then getting them revalued. You may end up making a surprising amount of money on items that, to most people, could be deemed as worthless, yet to others, could be just what they’re looking for.
