The 2 pfennig coin was issued by the German Empire between 1873 and 1916. It was equal to 2 pfennige or 0.02 mark.

The coin weighed about 3 grams and was composed mainly of copper. It reached a diameter of 20 mm and also had a smooth edge of about 62.83[4] mm. The obverse featured little design, just the statement that the coin was from Deutsches Reich and the year it was minted. The reverse, however, displayed the Reichsadler of the German Empire.[1][2][3]
