The Gulden was the currency of Free City of Danzig (German: Freie Stadt Danzig; Polish: Wolne Miasto Gdańsk) between 1923 and 1939. It was divided into 100 Pfennige. Until 1923, Danzig issued paper money denominated in Marks. The Gulden was not introduced at a specific rate to the mark but at a value of 25 Gulden = 1 pound sterling. Following incorporation into Nazi Germany at the beginning of the Second World War, the Reichsmark replaced the Gulden at a rate of 0.7 Reichsmark = 1 Gulden.
