In the German version of Heidi, the little boy asks Heidi to give him 'zwanzig Pfennige' ('20 pfennigs').

When Heidi was written, the money used in Germany was the Pfennig and the Goldmark. There were 100 'pfennigs'  in 1 Goldmark.

(In German the plural of Pfennig is Pfennige. Like all nouns in German, these words begin with a capital letter.)
