The Middle Ages still fascinate many people. Especially the fortified castles, the numerous wars and epidemics are synonyms for this very eventful time.
In the 10th and 11th centuries, the Ottonians provided the first Roman-German emperor with Otto I (912-973). His grandson Otto III. (980-1002) consolidated this rank through several stays in Italy. During the reign of Otto III, many German cities developed as large trading centres, in which the denarius and the pfennig were the most common denominations.
The Saxon pfennig - made of genuine Harz silver, represents the most famous coin of the Middle Ages along with the so-called Otto nobility pfennig. This penny represents the means of payment of the time of Widukind of Corvey (925 -935), who was a very famous Saxon scribe of that time and wrote the so-called "Saxon History".
