Euro Doom: Germany wants Deutschmark back

The Deutsche Mark, abbreviated "DM" or  "D-Mark" (help·info), was the official currency of West Germany from 1948 until 1990 and later the unified Germany from 1990 until 2002. It was first issued under Allied occupation in 1948 to replace the Reichsmark, and served as the Federal Republic of Germany's official currency from its founding the following year until the adoption of the euro. In English, but not in German, it is commonly called the "Deutschmark".
