Mark
Mark Mark, n. [See 2d {Marc}.] 1. An old weight and coin. See {Marc}. ``Lend me a mark.'' --Chaucer. [1913 Webster]

2. The unit of monetary account of the German Empire, equal to 23.8 cents of United States money (1913); the equivalent of one hundred pfennigs. Also, a silver coin of this value. The unit was retained by subsequent German states up to the time of the Federal Republic of Germany. In 1995, the value was approximately 65 cents American. In 1999 it began to be superseded by the Euro as a unit of currency in Germany and throughout much of the European union. [1913 Webster +PJC]
