  German Currency - Mark, Reichsmark, Rentenmark, Papermark, Deutsche Mark, Mark der DDR, Mark Deutscher Notenbanken, ...
Papiermark (Paper mark) was the nickname for the banknotes issued during the hyperinflation in Germany in 1922 and mainly 1923.
It was replaced by the Deutsche Mark in West Germany and by the East German mark ("Mark der DDR" or "Ostmark") in East Germany.
The Deutsche Mark (Symbol DM, DEM; 1 DM = 100 Pfennig) was the official currency of West Germany from the monetary reform in 1948 until the introduction of the Euro in 1999.

 Deutsche Mark - National German Currency
The success of the deutsche mark has been anchored in the success of West German exports, in the Bundesbank's solicitous management of the currency's value, and in the confidence generated by the country's prosperity.
The deutsche mark's position in global monetary reserves largely reflects the extensive deutsche mark holdings in European foreign-exchange reserve accounts as well as the desire among all industrial state treasuries and central banks to hold a stable currency in their reserves.
German government and banking officials were not certain that they welcomed such prominence, but they were prepared to accept it as a reflection of international appreciation of German monetary policies.

  German reunification - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
German reunification (Deutsche Wiedervereinigung) took place on October 3, 1990, when the areas of the former German Democratic Republic (GDR, in English commonly called "East Germany") were incorporated into the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG, in English commonly called "West Germany").
German Unity is the term that Hans-Dietrich Genscher used in front of international journalists to correct them when they asked him about "reunification" in 1990.
The flight of growing numbers of East Germans to non-communist countries via West Berlin led to East Germany erecting the GDR border system (of which the Berlin Wall was a part) in 1961 to prevent any further exodus.

 Chapter 4.4 The Euro - Exeter Beginners' German
The mark had been a symbol of fifty years of German post-War reliability and economic revival, banishing the traumatic memories of hyper-inflation in the 1920's, when the currency was worth that little that people needed to transport it in wheelbarrows if they needed to buy something substantial.
German suspicions about the euro have been increased by popular fears that manufacturers and shopkeepers took advantage of the introduction of the new currency to raise prices on the sly.
This has proved useful in helping German citizens to come to terms with the new currency, as one euro is thus roughly equal to two German marks.

But their German equivalents would be ever so nice to sing the children to sleep with, or else my awe-inspiring ears were made for display and not for superior usefulness in analyzing sounds.

 History of paper money in East Germany - Ostmark, Mark der DDR.
The Mark in East Germany (GDR) was introduced as an answer to the introduction of the Deutsche Mark in West Germany in 1948.
So initially the old German banknotes from the war (Rentenmark and Reichsmark) were marked with stamps as a provisional arrangement until new proper notes could be issued.
On 1.7.1990 in East Germany the West German Deutsche Mark was introduced as official currency, due to the political developments that finally ended in the re-unification of the country.

 Commanding Heights : The German Hyperinflation, 1923 | on PBS
The German Mark, the British shilling, the French franc, and the Italian lira all had about equal value, and all were exchanged four or five to the dollar.
In 1923, at the most fevered moment of the German hyperinflation, the exchange rate between the dollar and the Mark was one trillion Marks to one dollar, and a wheelbarrow full of money would not even buy a newspaper.
The tornado of the Mark inflation was succeeded by the "miracle of the Rentenmark." A new president took over the Reichsbank, Horace Greeley Hjalmar Schacht, who came by his first two names because of his father's admiration for an editor of the New York Tribune.

A person who has not studied German can form no idea of what a perplexing language it is. Surely there is not another language that is so slipshod and systemless, and so slippery and elusive to the grasp.
German books are easy enough to read when you hold them before the looking-glass or stand on your head--so as to reverse the construction--but I think that to learn to read and understand a German newspaper is a thing which must always remain an impossibility to a foreigner.
In the German it is true that by some oversight of the inventor of the language, a Woman is a female; but a Wife (Weib) is not--which is unfortunate.

 Mark Twain quotations - German
It's awful undermining to the intellect, German is; you want to take it in small doses, or first you know your brains all run together, and you feel them flapping around in your head same as so much drawn butter.
Whenever the literary German dives into a sentence, that is the last you are going to see of him till he emerges on the other side of his Atlantic with his verb in his mouth.
It is not like studying German, where you mull along, in a groping, uncertain way, for thirty years; and at last, just as you think you've got it, they spring the subjunctive on you, and there you are.

This note is a little confusing to me. It's from the same month as the two-printing-pass 20,000 mark note, but this one shows signs of having a fairly sophisticated printing process behind it.
I guess the Reichsbankdirectorium figured a million marks was going to be big enough to be useful for a while.
I'd imagine that as the economy spiraled into the toilet that these larger denomination notes (and the serial number suggests that there were perhaps as many as 2.6 billion of these notes around) made their way into general circulation.

Coins going by the name of mark have been around since the 9th Century and a standardised mark tied to the value of gold was introduced as the official currency for the German empire proclaimed by Kaiser Wilhelm in 1871.
On reunification in 1990, East German marks became obsolete and were exchangeable 1:1 with Deutschmarks.
Perhaps because of this very recent change, many East Germans are against the introduction of the euro, with 47% against and 44% in favour.

Taxes are to be collected in marks and if fees are paid in dinars, the United Nations said an extra fee, which will be set later, will be tacked on to the bill.
The decision to give supremacy to the German mark codifies a system that had been in effect unofficially for some time due to the weakness of the Yugoslav dinar, which is not freely convertible.
Nonetheless, officially declaring the mark as the primary currency is a major step in a province where the majority ethnic Albanian population aspires to complete independence from Serbia, the main Yugoslav republic.

That seems descriptive enough, but still it is not exact enough for a German; so he precedes the word with that article which indicates that the creature to follow is feminine, and writes it down thus: "die Engländerinn,"--which means "the she-Englishwoman." I consider that that person is over-described.
