The policy was "hard" in relation to the policies of certain other central banks in Europe. The "hard" and "soft" was in respect to the aims of inflation and political interference.
This policy was the foundation of the European Central Bank 's present policy [ clarification needed ] towards the euro.

These coins were issued in denominations of 1, 2, 5, and 10 pfennigs.

In , cupronickel pfennig and 1-mark coins were released, while a cupronickel 2 marks and a. Cupronickel replaced silver in the 5 marks in The 2- and 5-mark coins have often been used for commemorative themes, though typically only the generic design for the 5 marks is intended for circulation.

The weights and dimensions of the coins can be found in an FAQ of the Bundesbank. Unlike other countries such as Australia there was no attempt or proposal suggested for the withdrawal of the 1- and 2-pfennig coins.
Both coins were still in circulation in and supermarkets in particular still marked prices to the nearest pfennig. This penchant for accuracy continues with the euro while Finland or the Netherlands for example, price to the nearest 5 cents with the 1-cent coin still encountered in Germany.

Likewise, sechser sixer could refer to a coin of 5 pfennigs. Both colloquialisms refer to several pre currencies of the previously independent states notably Prussia , where a groschen was subdivided into 12 pfennigs, hence half a groschen into 6.
After , 12 old pfennigs would be converted into 10 pfennigs of the mark, hence pfennig coins inherited the "Groschen" name and 5-pfennig coins inherited the "sechser" name. Both usages are only regional and may not be understood in areas where a Groschen coin did not exist before In particular, the usage of "sechser" is less widespread.
