The GDR minted a 10-mark coin in 1970 on the occasion of the 200th birthday of Ludwig von Beethoven. The coin was produced in uncirculated finish.
Ludwig van Beethoven is considered one of the most important composers in European history. He was active in the time of the Viennese Classicism and was a decisive pioneer for the era of Romanticism.
Ludwig van Beethoven's childhood was considered difficult and problematic. The father drove his son to musical excellence at a very early age and wanted to turn him into a child prodigy. Ludwig van Beethoven received his first piano lessons from his father, and he also learned the organ and clarinet.
Some colleagues of Ludwig van Beethoven's father soon recognized the talent of little Ludwig van Beethoven and were ready to encourage him appropriately.
Christian Gottlob Neefe gave him lessons in piano, organ and composition and Franz Anton Ries promoted him in violin.
It was Christian Gottlob Neefe who published the first works composed by Beethoven himself in 1782. He made the 14-year-old Ludwig van Beethoven his representative as court organist.
