A "Ziffer" is the sign that describes a single digit number. So 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are all Ziffern and 78640 consists of 5 Ziffern.
A "Nummer" is one number in a row of other numbers, like football players all have Nummern on their backs, your housenumber, your shoe/clothing size, etc.
