The 1938 5 Reichspfennig features an Eagle on top of a swastika with the lettering: ‘Deutsches Reich’ and teh date.

The reverse has the lettering ‘Reichspfennig’ with the value and the mint mark ‘D’ for Munich between two oak-leaves benealth.  

The Third Reich, meaning “Third Realm” or “Third Empire”, alluded to the Nazis’ conceit that Nazi Germany was the successor to the earlier Holy Roman Empire (800–1806) and German Empire (1871–1918).
