Münze Deutschland is the Official Sales Agency for Collector Coins of the Federal Republic of Germany. German coins are issued by the Federal Ministry of Finance.
History of Münze Deutschland
On 6 December 1967, with collectors showing increasing interest in German commemorative coins and regular currency coins, the Federal Ministry of Finance instructed the Federal Debt Administration to set up the Official Sales Agency for Collector Coins of the Federal Republic of Germany (german abbr. ‘VfS’).
Federal Securities Administration
At the beginning of 2002, the Federal Debt Administration was renamed the Federal Securities Administration. The Official Sales Agency for Collector Coins of the Federal Republic of Germany remained part of the new body.
Pan-European invitation to tender
Faced with the introduction of the euro and new products (e.g. gold coins), and against the background of growing interest among collectors, the governmental structure began showing signs of strain in terms of sales and marketing. To improve efficiency and customer service, the Federal Ministry of Finance decided to outsource these functions to a private service provider in a pan-European invitation to tender.
Since the end of January 2020, the VfS has become Münze Deutschland. The new name goes with a new look and a new logo. Other than that, everything remains the same for our customers.
