There is information about the issuance in German lands in the 16th century of silver coins with a face value of 1/24 thaler, containing the legend "Silber Groschen" (or similar). However, in my opinion, this cannot be considered the name of the denomination of the coin, but only the metal from which these coins were made (silver).

The name of the silbergroschen coin literally means "silver groschen" (German "Silber Groschen" = "Silver Groschen").
